Vigils to Save Our Health Care


Click here for more information & to register for updates!

Republicans have started moving on their plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and cut funding for Medicare and Medicaid, with no plan to ensure that 30 million people nationwide – including 1 million here in New Jersey – can keep their health care coverage.

We’re taking action to try and stop this insanity!

We’ll be holding candlelight vigils outside the Congressional offices on

Wednesday, February 15th from 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM.

Join us as we stand up to these threats to take away our health care. Sign up below.

Vigil Locations:

  • Morristown- Congressman Frelinghuysen
  • Westfield- Congressman Lance
  • Flemington- Congressman Lance
  • Mays Landing- Congressman LoBiondo
  • Marlton- Congressman MacArthur
  • Toms River- Congressman MacArthur
  • Freehold- Congressman Smith
  • Hamilton- Congressman Smith

Save our Health Care – NJ Chamber Train events

Every year highly paid lobbyists and corporations spend big bucks for the opportunity to have access to NJ’s political establishment.

Well, that’s not us.

However, we can meet the train at every stop in New Jersey and demand that those getting on the train fight for our health care.

If the Affordable Care Act is repealed, nearly 1,000,000 New Jerseyans will lose access to health care.

Join us on Thursday, February 16th at any one of these locations:

Newark Penn Station – 10:00am

Metropark Station – 11:00am

New Brunswick Station – 11:30am

Trenton Station – 12:00pm
