March 2, 2015 - A4E Members Arrested Protesting for Medicaid Expansion

Three members of A4E (Tim Denson, Adam Veale, Adam Lassila), together with 9 other Moral Monday protesters were arrested at the Georgia State Capitol for protesting lack of medical coverage for 650,000 Georgians. These 12 brave individuals were willing to be arrested because they understood that someone dies in Georgia nearly every day that our State Legislature withholds Medicaid expansion.

All 12 protesters stayed in jail overnight and were released the next day. The state declined to pursue charges.
