Elisa drafted the following statement at the request of the SPAN Executive Committee in response to all the divisive rhetoric we've been hearing lately. SPAN Ohio Solidarity Statement.mov
As a community concerned about the health of all Ohioans Single Payer Action Network (SPAN) Ohio strongly opposes any discrimination based on religion, race, ethnicity, nation of origin, refugee status, gender or sexual orientation. Martin Luther King, Jr. said not only that “injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane” of all inequalities, but also that “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.” Our destiny cannot survive unlawful bans and bias. SPAN Ohio supports justice in health care and justice for all.
