This week and next, members of Organizing For America are hosting local meetings, happy hours, phonathons, etc to push for a strong public option in the health care reform bill.
"Congress is moving rapidly toward finalizing health care reform legislation, with crucial votes expected in both the House and the Senate within days. With so much at stake -- and the D.C. lobbyists going into overdrive -- we have to take our grassroots campaign to the next level.
All this week, OFA volunteers like you will be knocking on doors, making calls to neighbors, and attending public events to build the local support for health care reform we need to pass a strong final bill. If you can spare an hour or two for health care reform, this is the week to do it." - Organizing for America
I will definitely be attending some of these events, including an event this Saturday canvassing the Castro and Lower Haight neighborhoods. Here's the link to the event with more details: http://my.barackobama.com/page/event/detail/gpf54s
If this Saturday's location/time doesn't work for you, find and sign up for a Health Care Reform Week of Action event near you: http://my.barackobama.com/page/content/ofhcfindevent?source=feature. Or better yet, host your own event!
