Organizing for America Announcement on Health Care

Following is a call for action from Organizing for America on health care.


Organizing for America, the former Obama for America operation, is holding a large health care meeting on Wednesday June 10 ay 7:30pm (doors open at 7pm). OFA is a part of the DNC, and is focused in furthering the President's agenda. We expect a fierce debate in Congress and the nation over health care. We want to organize around President Obama’s three principles: Reducing costs; Guaranteeing choice; Ensuring that all Americans have quality affordable health care.

We’ll talk about personal experiences that make health care reform important, review President Obama’s plan, how we can best support that plan, and local health care service events for the weekend of June 27. Dozens of these meetings have already been held throughout Maryland, and thousands nationwide. Join us at the last meeting for Montgomery County as we build towards a weekend of service on June 27.

Please join us on Wed. June 10 for this important health care meeting. (And please don't go to the old meeting place!) We'll also update everyone on OFA's mission and organization. Refreshments available.

Date: Wednesday June 10
Time: Doors open 7 pm, Program starts promptly at 7:30 pm
Location: NEW LOCATION!! At the new MCEA (teachers’ union) headquarters:
12 Taft Court, Rockville MD 20850

(In case of extreme weather: if MCPS evening school activities are cancelled, this meeting will be cancelled.)
