Let's Dance and Celebrate! Thursday, July 30th marks the 50th Anniversary of Medicare, and we think it's a pretty great program (as American as Apple Pie) that we should Protect, Improve, and Expand to everyone.
Join Health Care for All Colorado and other supporters in a multi-city Flash Mob as part of a growing list of events across the country celebrating the Golden Anniversary of Medicare!
HCAC is coordinating flash mobs in Denver, Fort Collins, and as our chapter in Pueblo is holding their event on Thursday, July 30th. Live in another city and want to lead one in your town? Let us know and we'll help you organize it!
What is a flash mob? A chance to spend a fun few minutes with like-minded people, performing a short choreographed dance in a public place to bring attention to the benefits of Medicare for All to the unsuspecting people in the area. We need a lot of people in each location to be able to produce a high quality video for YouTube!
5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 30th at the Pueblo Union Depot

Medicare Flash Mob FAQ:
Q: This sounds awesome! What do I need to do?
A: Simply RSVP right here, so we can let you know of any last minute changes or logistics, then watch the video below to learn the simple dance moves (like a super cool line dance)!
Q: What do I need to bring?
A: Bring yourself and, if you can, a creative sign that encourages people to consider Medicare for All. Click here for some examples of signs you can make. The more creative, the better!
Q: I can't dance at all -- I actually have two left feet -- but would still love to help. What can I do?
A: We need a handful of people at each location to record the event on video so we can compile them into a statewide video! Cell phone video is fine, but bring a digital video camera if you have one!
Q: Can I do both -- donate $50 and attend the Flash Mob?
A: Absolutely! Just remember to use the donate link to donate and the registration link to RSVP!
Q: How do I learn the dance that everyone is going to be doing?
A: Click the video below. We will be dancing to a song called "Medicare for All" (only 3 minutes long) and waving our signs around for everyone to see!
