Colorado grassroots groups will host a rally on Saturday at Denver’s City Park in response to lawmakers’ renewed efforts this week to repeal and replace Obamacare.

The protest is affiliated with Our Lives on the Line, which is organizing protests all across the country. Protests will occur in other Colorado cities, including Broomfield and Longmont.

Among the speakers at the rally will be Kelly Stahlman, a mother whose twin sons suffer from a variety of health issues. Stahlman has been open about her sons’ medical issues in the past and has been critical of cuts to Medicaid.

The Colorado Health Institute found that more than 600,000 people in the state could lose health care if the Republican plan passes.

Organizations involved in the protest include Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition and Protect Our Care Colorado Coalition.

The rally will begin at 10 a.m.
