The Inauguration is coming to town and so are millions of people!

The Inauguration is coming to town and so are millions of people!

Yes, we can have a national health program (if we ask for it)! We need
your help to spread our message of hope for real health care reform and
educate about HR 676.

The Leadership Conference for Guaranteed Healthcare/National Single
Payer Coalition and Progressive Democrats of America will be handing out
leaflets at metro stations all around Washington, D.C. to tell people
about HR 676.

Please join us on Friday, January 16th to leaflet at several Maryland
metro stations. We will start at 5 pm and continue until we run out of
leaflets or crowds.

On the Red line, we'll be at Shady Grove, Medical Center, Silver Spring
and Takoma Park. On the Green line, we'll be at College Park, Greenbelt
and Branch Avenue. On the Orange line, we'll be at New Carrollton and
Largo Town Center.

Please let us know where you can be to help. We encourage you to sign up
in groups of at least 2, but if you need a partner, we'll try to find
one for you. Contact Margaret Flowers at conversationcoalition@gmail.com

Thank you!
