Resistance Cinema Presents: Power to Heal on Tuesday, December 2, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall at 12 West 11th Street. Power to Heal is an hour-long documentary that offers a compelling chapter in the historic struggle to secure equal access to healthcare for all Americans. Central is the tale of how a new national program, Medicare, became a powerful force in the coordinated effort to racially desegregate thousands of hospitals across the country in a matter of months. Special Guest: JOSEPHINE DISPARTI, a retired Registered Nurse who appears in the film, is an activist in the movement to support Medicare For All or single payer healthcare. She lives in New York City and will lead our post screening discussion. Join us in the Parish Hall. Admission is free (donations gladly accepted). Please join us for this exciting event and bring your friends!
