On Monday, June 27, 2016, Consumer Health Coalition participated in the PA Budget Statewide Day of Action by organizing a rally at Freedom Corner in Pittsburgh’s Hill District. Many people gathered and voiced support for increased revenue that will support human services and education, which are vital to many people.
The crowd chanted the slogan “Real People with Real Issues deserve Real Revenue.”
Speakers at the rally included rally organizer Sally Jo Snyder from Consumer Health Coalition, Sarah Byrne-Houser of Pittsburgh Association for the Education of Young Children, Helen Gerhardt of Just Harvest, and Milton Henderson of TRCIL Services, Inc.
As the budget deadline draws near on June 30, CHC is encouraging everyone to continue calling their legislators to voice support for revenue that supports our essential human services and education needs.
