What: Press Conference to Educate the Community on the IRA and Celebrate its Passage
When: Thursday, September 1 at 10 a.m.
Where: Health Brigade, 1010 N Thompson St, Richmond, VA 23230
Richmond, Va. — The Richmond Chapter of Virginia Organizing and U.S. Rep. Donald McEachin will host a media conference to celebrate the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act at the Health Brigade on Thursday, September 1 at 10 a.m. In addition to Rep. McEachin, speakers will include members of the chapter and representatives from Sierra Club and Senior Connections.
The Inflation Reduction Act is set to enact historic drug pricing reform, lower energy costs, and implement environmental justice efforts. Medicare will now be able to negotiate the cost of prescription drugs for seniors and people with disabilities. By enabling the Internal Revenue Service to force the wealthiest Americans to pay the taxes they have avoided paying for years, Congress will be able to invest in additional environmental justice initiatives, lower energy costs, and make health care more affordable in the future.
