Howard Dean At Hunter College Today--2pm

Do you have the afternoon off? Interested in meeting Howard Dean? Want to talk about the health care debate going on in America (and the alternate reality the Senate is debating)? Well if you answered yes to those three then there's an event today at 2 o'clock for you. Howard Dean will be at Hunter College for an already packed forum focused on how the legislation for health care reform is progressing in the Congress.

The event is being hosted by several local progressive groups, including one that I am a member of, Democracy for New York City:

Gov. Howard Dean will be in New York City for a public event to speak about his work on behalf of Healthcare for All, co-sponsored by DFA, Democracy for NYC (local coalition group of DFA), Rekindling Reform, NYC for Change, Metro New York Health Care for All, and Three Parks Independent Democrats.

When: Tuesday afternoon, June 23rd, 2-4pm

Where: Hunter College School of Social Work, 129 E. 79th Street, at Lexington Ave., in Manhattan

Subway: 6 train to 77th Street. For other trains and buses, get address-to-address directions at Hopstop.com.

RSVP: Space is limited! Please scroll down to RSVP.

Join us! There are over 30,000 lobbyists in Washington D.C. but there are over one million DFA Members nationwide. Join Gov. Howard Dean and local grassroots groups to learn how to beat the lobbyists at their own game!

The RSVP list is currently closed but everyone is encouraged to show up anyways as there will be additional room provided in case the space fills up completely. This is one of the most important issues facing the nation, and the more people that are actively participating in the process, the more likely we'll be able to convince the Democratic majority in the Senate to do the right thing and include a public option.
