Health Care Rallies All Across NC on Saturday, August 29th

The novelty of the news coverage of the rowdiness of the health care reform debate is wearing off. And as the dust settles, we realize that the lies about reform didn't stick and that there are more people in North Carolina who support real reform than opponents who don't.

Our numbers have always been larger than the side fighting against reform, but at the beginning of Congress' August recess, opponents were more visible. That is not the case any more, and we need to end August with a real display of public support so our Senators and Representatives remember what they are working for when they return to Washington.

Come to the rally and listen to our speakers who include:
* Rev. Dr. William Barber of the NC NAACP
* MaryBe McMillian of the AFL-CIO of NC
* Bob Jackson of the AARP
* Margarida Jorge, National Field Director for HCAN
Also, there will be a choral performance from the great folks at Fruits of Labor and a skit from Billionaires Against Health Care Reform.

You are not going to want to miss this event!

We need as many people as possible to come and show their support, but we also need volunteers. Click here to volunteer to gather signatures on letters or petitions to Senator Kay Hagan. We also need people to help clean up after the event. If you want to be a member of the Green Crew and make sure we leave the Capitol as nice as we found it, please click here.
