As you may have heard, Vice President Mike Pence is visiting Lexington tomorrow (Wednesday, July 12) to garner support for repealing the Affordable Care Act and replacing it with Trumpcare (Wealth-care).

Our friends with such organizations as Together We Will Bluegrass, Indivisible Bluegrass and Our Revolution Central Kentucky are organizing a rally to show the Vice President that Lexingtonians oppose the GOP’s draconian health care plan. These are groups of concerned citizens who have organized themselves around opposing the administration’s right-wing agenda.  (They do great work!) #Resist

The details of the event are developing. If you are on Facebook, please follow the event page (click here) for up-to-date details.

Here is the information from the organizers:

Time: 3:00 – 5:00 PM
Location:  701 Red Mile Rd.

Vice President Pence is being sent to Lexington to try to sell the GOP healthcare bill. We need to make our voices heard! Details will be added as we learn where and when he will be speaking. For now just RSVP to this event as interested so you will get the updates. Post any news you might hear here as well so we can organize.

Update – Pence will be at Bryant’s Rent-All on Red Mile Road at 4:10 pm tomorrow.

This will be a peaceful, non-violent protest. We will abide with city laws and respond peacefully to any requests from the police. We will not block traffic or impede pedestrians. When you arrive, we will give instructions on where to stand.

We are working on parking suggestions. Please make sure that you respect all private property.
