St. Pete's Williams Park will host a noon rally on health care today.

Dubbed "ProtectOurCare", the rally will include local residents and health care advocates who will urge elected officials to protect the Affordable Care Act.

U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, D-St. Pete, will be joined by U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy III, D-Mass.

Those attending will also urge better' access to affordable healthcare — fighting attempts to undermine protections for those with pre-existing conditions, holding "Big Pharma" accountable for rising prescription drug prices, and calling on Florida to expand Medicaid.
