On UHC Day, don’t forget to join the 24-hour #ProtectEveryone Virtual Rally, with three ways to participate: Create, Amplify, Move. While we may not be able to come together in person the way we have in the past, the goal is to recreate the energy, diversity and unity of a UHC Day rally, and get as many people involved as possible. Friends, family, colleagues all welcome, especially in a year where COVID-19 has made the fight for Health for All personal for just about everyone.
