Health Care for Everybody

Times Square, November 13, 2008

In the darkening and damp evening Granny Peace Brigade members joined members of HealthCare NOW and other advocates in a lively rally for single payer health care. Eva-Lee demonstrated how to call Congress to support House Resolution 676 while people punched the Congressional switchboard number (202)224-3121 into their phones. We passed out flyers with the local office numbers of the entire New York State Congressional delegation and gave tips on getting through to busy offices. After a number of animated speeches and chants we marched to the GHI headquarters on 9th Avenue at 34th Street where Judy spoke about the Gray Panthers long time support for single payer health care. The event was topped off with a mini-concert by the Raging Grannies.

Learn more on Saturday December 6 at a NYC-wide TEACH-IN about strategies to build a united front of sustained political action that creates a national single-payer health care system in the U.S.
Where: 25 West 43rd Street, 18th floor.
When: 11 am to 3 pm.
