Unions Hit Doors for Medicaid Expansion in VA(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)

Volunteers from a dozen international unions placed door hangers throughout two different Northern Virginia legislative districts on Saturday, calling upon those members of the House of Delegates to support expansion of Medicaid to cover the 400,000 Virginians without health care. "All of us know someone hoping and praying they or a family member doesn't become ill or injured," said NoVA Labor President Dan Duncan. "These folks need our help to become more financially stable." Virginia's elected officials return to Richmond on Monday in special session to pass a budget that includes Gov. Terry McAuliffe's call for Medicaid expansion. photos: Julie Emery of SEIU VA 512 (right) pulls a precinct packet; Lucy Broder (above left), with the help of father David (president of SEIU VA 512), delivers a hanger to a door in Manassas. photos by Dan Duncan (right) and David Broder (left).
