As the battle over health care reform rages on in Washington, community members continue to fight for health care here in Wilmington.

Many local organizations, including Cape Fear Citizens for Health Care and RISE Community gathered at Hugh MacRae Park Sunday urging citizens to get involved and support reform.

Supporters say that the time for change is now, and that health insurance reform is a big problem that is going to require a big change to fix.

“I understand the concern. It’s a huge problem. It’s a huge issue,” said Allie Nardella of RISE Community. “And so it is going to require a great change, but it’s a change that needs to happen. We really need to do this now, and again, what are we waiting for? If not now, when?”

The event featured live music and food. It was part of the kick-off for the National Hands Across America for Healthcare campaign.
