Calling on all Virginians to join our People’s Caravan for Medicaid Expansion

Cars, trucks and motorcycles will join together in caravans from the four corners of Virginia to travel planned routes through towns, villages, and rural countryside until reaching the state Capitol in Richmond. The purpose is to extend Medicaid coverage to more than 400,000 people who cannot afford healthcare.
