Dear Single Payer Activist,
Join us in letting President Obama know that Californians want single payer healthcare. We support HR 676, the U.S. National Healthcare Act.
We do not have to go to Washington, DC to let our President know what Californians want. He is coming to SF.
And want the Kucinich Amendment passed so states can enact their single payer legislation.
We also need your help building this demonstration. We need dozens of phone tree callers. I will send you a list of names and a suggested script. We also need dozens of people to hold large banners on October 15. Please let us know how you can help.
___ I plan to attend the demonstration.
___ I can help call our phone tree.
___ I can help hold a banner.
___ I have forwarded this alert.
1. The California Democratic Party wants single payer healthcare.

3. The City of San Francisco supports single payer both nationally (HR 676) and in California (SB 810).
