Connect – Changemakers at MCC

CONNECT

Democracy only works if we participate, which starts by recognizing the issues we face as a community, as a city, and as a nation and finding ways to build relationships and common understanding with each other. At MCC, we have a variety of ways to build community and connections, and individuals can learn a new skill or more about an important issue. Join us for our series of civic-education events in partnership with America 101, during which we take the issues you hear about in the news and learn about them from a variety of angles and contexts to better understand how they connect to our own lives and community and also explore how to engage and take action.

Healthcare in America: Past, Present, and Future

Presented by Manny Cantor Center and America 101

Tuesday | 10/29 | 6:30-8PM | 6th Floor

What is the story of healthcare policy in America?

Join us as we explore how we got here, and what comes next. We’ll examine healthcare legislation and proposals: from the Affordable Care Act to Medicare for All, to Medicaid and Medicare, to understand the differences, the challenges, the champions, and the oppositions. We’ve gathered a panel of experts to help us understand how healthcare policy affects our communities and the actions we can take to address it.
