    "Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane." –Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Not your area, but I am going to throw in a NY 676 Week plug...

    New Yorkers will be part of a nationwide multitude of activities celebrating and supporting House Resolution H.R. 676, initiated by Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (D-Mich.).

    A celebration will be held to honor the City Council, Labor Unions, and other political leaders who support National Healthcare for all. G. Oliver Koppell (D-City Council), introduced Resolution 75, supporting H.R. 676, and it is hoped that the City Council will announce passage of the Resolution on 6/7/6.

    While members of Congress debate healthcare policy, Healthcare-NOW! and healthcare advocates all over the country will hold demonstrations, screenings, learn-ins and other actions to mark the day 6/7/6, specially chosen to represent this important bill.

    Program - 6:00-7:00PM
    --Food, music, mingling & introduction to film.

    7:00-8:00 PM--Screening, “Don’t Be a Chicken” about Healthcare; LEARN-IN on H.R. 676: “How to Resolve the Healthcare Crisis in the United States.”
