HARRISBURG, Pa. (ErieNewsNow) – Advocates with Put People First PA rallied for an end to Medicaid cuts. They want the state to step up for those who have been kicked off Medicaid as a result of the continuous enrollment period expiring on Mar 31. 

Advocates spent the day singing and chanting around the Capitol Complex to push healthcare access for all. 

“We kind of wanted to put a fun spin on coming to Harrisburg, which sometimes can be intimidating for folks,” said Nijmie Dzurinko, the Co-Founder of Put People First PA.  

Their message for policy makers is simple: stop the Medicaid cuts. 

“Medicaid is important to me because if I don’t have this tool, I wouldn’t be here. We demand no cuts to Medicaid and expand Medicaid to all Pennsylvania residents,” said Shawn Kneisley.
