August 20: Hit the streets in Florida for health care reform!

A message from Floridians for Health Care! We know we have readers in Florida, and other readers with family and friends in Florida--make a call or send an email and turn people out tomorrow!

Did you want to come to the FLARA/FFHC August 20 Health Forum with Congressman Wexler at the So. County Civic Center but were too late to get a ticket?

You can still participate and make a difference for Health Care Reform.

The right wing crazies are planning to come out in force to demonstrate on Jog Road outside of the Forum with their message of lies and misrepresentations. Local TV cameras (and maybe C-Span) will be there filming the event. We do not want the opposition to be the only visual they put on tv. We are planning a counter demonstration in favor of health reform.

So, whether you support single payer or a public option, we need you! Will you volunteer today to carry a sign supporting health care reform out on Jog Road outside the Civic Center? It will take only 2 - 3 hours of your time (or as long as you are able to stay).

If you will, please email us back at and give us your name, phone number and email address, then on Thursday, August 20th, come to the South County Civic Center, 16700 Jog Road, Delray Beach between 11 and 11:30 am.

Once you have parked, walk back to the entrance to the center on Jog Road. Larry Pius of will be there wearing a yellow "Fight for Single Payer" T-Shirt. He will have signs for you to wave - OR, if you wish, you can create your own sign and bring it with you. Sheriff's Deputies will also be present to make sure everyone stays orderly and keep folks out of the traffic lanes for safety purposes.

Be a part of this historic event--don't let the right wing outshine us! America needs to see that more of us support reform than those who oppose it. Now is the time for progressives to get off our butts and hit the streets--volunteer today! Email!
