ACA Protest March with hundreds of constituents from all organized Democratic and Progressive clubs in the district.

SANTA CLARITA, Calif., Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Democratic and Progressive clubs, including the Antelope Valley

Democratic Club, present Democrats Knight Out! A March on Steve Knight's Offices.

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017, 4-5pm

Accessing your elected official is supposed to be the right of every citizen, but for the last several months, voters in the 25th congressional district have had consistent difficulty making contact with their representative, House Republican, Steve Knight.  As the federal government prepares to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, a program that has high enrollment in this part of the state, Knight's staff has been reluctant to provide any information regarding the congressman's schedule, making it near impossible for his constituents to meet with him to express their fears about losing their invaluable health coverage without a clear plan to replace it.

Last week Knight sent out an email referencing a Tele Town Hall he claims to have hosted. Members of his email list received no advance notice of the call and the event was not advertised on social media or the government website.

This is unacceptable.  

That's why tomorrow afternoon the Antelope Valley Democratic Club is striking back. In conjunction with every organized democratic and progressive club in the 25th district, we'll be flooding Representative Knight's three offices from 4 pm to 5 pm, marching for our right to be heard.

Please join us for this important event by meeting at one of the following three locations:

Antelope Valley Office1008 West Avenue M-14, Suite EPalmdale, CA  93551

Santa Clarita Valley Office26415 Carl Boyer Drive, Suite 220Santa Clarita, CA  91350

Simi Valley Office1445 E. Los Angeles Avenue, #206Simi Valley, CA  93065

Because you can't hide from democracy.

"We will demonstrate to Congressman Steve Knight's office that we will work to defend the hard-won protections of the Affordable Care Act and Medicare/Medicaid, applying our power by conducting a 'march on -- call out' rally." --Brandon Zavala, Antelope Valley Democratic Club

Participating organizations: Antelope Valley Democratic Club, Democratic, Club of the High Desert, Simi Valley Democratic Club, Democratic Alliance for Action, and SCV United for Progress
