Health Care Rally photo Community groups organized by the Thomas Merton Center, including anti-war, religious and social-justice organizations held a demonstration to support healthcare for all at Centre City Tower, Smithfield & 7th Street on Friday, October 8 at 8:15AM. "Thousands of people in Allegheny County and millions across the country are facing the same struggle as the nine janitors who were tossed out of Centre City Tower.

The rising cost of healthcare is tearing apart this community," says Tim Vining, Executive Director of the Thomas Merton Center.
