On May 17th, join us as the Right to Heal Campaign announces a call to action and next steps in the fight to unite veterans and VA workers to save the VA and fight back against privatization. While open to the public and our social justice and healthcare allies, this event is especially being organized to turnout workers and veterans at the VA hospital.
After the announcement the Workers' Rights Board will hold a hearing to discuss what VA privatization would mean for veterans. The hearing will feature experts in the field of VA care, veterans speaking to their experience of using both the VA and the private sector, and VA employees who have dedicated their lives serving veterans.
