Taking a walk down "HMO Row"...

I'm posting the following because it's a great example of a creatively planned event (not because I expect totheteeth readers to trek over to the san fernando valley, ca -- but if you can, go go go!). It's really exciting to see a health care reform event utilizing education, direct action, and creative filming:
On Wednesday, June 7, nurses, patients and healthcare activists will host a Walking Tour of 'HMO Row' in Woodland Hills. Join us for a short, guided tour of several insurance company office buildings, with descriptions of the harm these corporations are doing to patients as we advocate for Medicare for All-a national bill (HR 676) authored by Rep. John Conyers (MI), and a California state bill (SB 840) authored by Sen. Sheila Kuehl.

Please come and support this San Fernando Valley event for Universal Health Care.

Wednesday, June 7
11:00 AM
Blue Cross Headquarters
Corner of Owensmouth and Oxnard
Woodland Hills, California
Parking available at the mall by AMC Theaters.

Come shortly before 11:00 AM, since the event will begin promptly.
Don Schroeder will be filming this event and Doris Nelson will be speaking for SB 840 representing HCA.

Hope to see you,

John Glass
