August 28, 2023

Seven activists who were arrested after they went up the State House steps and refused to leave on the last day of the General Assembly session had their charges dropped this week. The seven were part of a demonstration with the immigrant advocacy group CASA, rallying for better access to health care by asking the Senate to pass a bill which would remove immigration status as a barrier to obtaining insurance through the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange. The seven held a large banner across the steps reading, “Healthcare is a human right.”
