Social Security Works Washington Coalition is celebrating the 80th anniversary of Social Security and the 50th anniversary of Medicare!

Remember this is the celebration event for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Please do not post anything about any campaigns or elections on this page.

We are rallying at Westlake Park on August 8th at 1PM for Social Security and Medicare.

Social Security and Medicare are crucial tenets of retirement security. These two programs are the most successful anti-poverty programs in the history of the US, but face corporate attack. Join us as we celebrate Social Security and Medicare while calling on our elected officials to protect and expand these program by scrapping the cap on taxable income, adopting the caregiver credit, and using the CPI-E to calculate benefits.
