FIRM Spotlight: CHIRLA – Stories Reflecting a Broken Health Care System

With the health care debate raging about whether or not “illegals” are going to be included, I kept thinking “But they’re talking about human beings”.  Why is it so difficult for people to see that we are talking about people’s lives here?

Perhaps if more people could see this video from our partners at CHIRLA:

Communities of color convey their frustration with the current health care system and hope that with their testimonies an inclusive affordable and comprehensive health care reform is approved by congress and the president.

It humanizes the healthcare debate in a way that I think should be infused into the current dialogue.
