Insulin Day of Action – Mother’s Day 2018

No mother should have to bury her child because they can’t afford insulin. Insulin was first made available nearly one hundred years ago, but young people today are dying from lack of access to this life-saving drug. 

On the day before Mother’s Day, Saturday May 12, we are holding pharmaceutical companies accountable for putting profits over people’s lives. We are holding marches, rallies, and listening booths in cities throughout the country.

At these events we will collect signatures for Mother’s Day Cards to deliver to the offices of insulin manufacturers, featuring stories of mothers who have lost their children because they couldn’t access insulin.

Please join us in telling pharma that they need to lower insulin prices, for the sake of parents and children everywhere who depend on this medicine to live.
