Several local activism organizations will hold a protest of the Affordable Care Act repeal this weekend.

According to the press release for the event, the Rev. Fred Kammer, S.J., director of the Jesuit Social Research Institute, which is housed on Loyola’s campus, will emcee the event.

“We priests officiate at many funerals,” Kammer said in the release. “No death is sadder than an unnecessary one. I fear many will die unnecessary deaths if the ACA is repealed without a carefully thought-through replacement that assures the same breadth and depth of health coverage as the ACA does.”

The protest will feature speakers who depend on the Affordable Care Act and will take place on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 10:30 a.m. It is expected to be held at Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 in the Lower Garden District, though the location is pending approval from the City of New Orleans, according to the Facebook event page.

The protest is hosted by the Jesuit Social Research Institute, the Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy and the Progressive Social Network of Greater New Orleans.
