– Guests: Marthella Johnson and Justice Donna Massey with Arkansas Community Organizations | President Donald Trump has proposed $800 Billion in cuts to Medicaid. If this is passed, millions of children and senior citizens will be left without any resources for medical care. Arkansas Community Organizations and partners will participate in the National Day of Action on Healthcare, Wednesday, August 30th at 3pm at Stephen’s Community Garden (across the street from Stephen’s Elementary School) on West 18th and Maple Street in Little Rock. The event will focus on cuts to CHIP and Medicaid. ARKids First is the successful children’s health care program funded by Medicaid and CHIP that covers almost 382,000 children in households up to 200% of poverty. The mission is to inform the low income working class community, the retirement community and those that support them of this egregious act. Elected officials must know the community will not stand for this and they can be voted out. For more information, call Arkansas Community Organizations at 501-376-7151. The office is located at 2101 South Main Street in Little Rock.
