Feminists Turn Up the Heat for Healthcare
What will it take to achieve affordable quality healthcare for all? Join Barbara Commins, a nurse from Single Payer Now, Tiffany Ng, a youth organizer with Chinese Progressive Association and Andrea Weever, a disabled rights activist in a roundtable discussion. President Obama’s statements that his national plan would not provide insurance for undocumented immigrants or extend federal funds for abortions echoes the right-wing’s racist and sexist agenda. The Democratic-led congress has tried to distance itself from single-payer or a public option. Bring your ideas and strategies to this discussion on building a grassroots movement to guarantee universal coverage for everyone.

Before the meeting you are invited to share a delicious autumn buffet, with vegetarian option, a fundraiser for the organization, at 6:15pm for a $7.50 donation.
