Come to a "Yoga Fundraiser for Single Payer Universal Healthcare" (in San Francisco, Saturday December 22, 3 pm, at 474 Valencia Street, near 16th Street)

Come flex (and relax) your muscles and raise money toward the fight for universal, single-payer* healthcare at the same time. Bring a towel or yoga mat to a one-time yoga class taught by Pamela Wilson, a certified yoga instructor with 20 years experience. Money raised at this sliding scale event goes to the California Universal Health Care Organizing Project, which is a San Francisco grass roots organization dedicated to the passage and signing of California's single payer health reform bill, SB 840; and to its federal counterpart, HR 676, the single payer health care reform legislation in the US Congress. For more information, call (415) 695-7891, or go to http://www.singlepayernow.net

*"Single-payer" means removing the thousands of health insurance companies from health care and replacing them with a single government entity to take in and pay out all monies for health care; to provide health care for all.
