Bootsy Collins is speaking out for better dental care at the city’s neighborhood clinics. The famous bassist went to speak at city hall, yesterday, to lobby for better dental care at Cincinnati’s neighborhood health clinics.
Bootsy has lately been a strong activist for dental care. Earlier this year, his nephew Kyle Willis died from a tooth infection that spread to his brain. Kyle couldn’t get any medical attention because he was unemployed and without insurance.
After Bootsy spoke to the quality of life committee, council members Laure Quinlivan, Wendell Young, and Roxanne Qualls voted a motion to fund health clinics that would extend its evening hours.
Check out the video below to hear some of Bootsy’s testimony.
