1. Universal Health Care House Party
The Presidential campaigns and election have brought much talk about change for our health care system. Join Gainesville Area NOW to learn more about national health care and what you can do to get involved in fighting for it. This meeting will be women-only since we are doing a CR; we will be answering the following Consciousness Raising (CR) questions at the meeting:
1.When and how have you had health insurance (i.e.: through your job, a spouse's job, Medicare/Medicaid, or a parent?) Does the way you receive health insurance affect your life? In what ways?
2. What are or have been your reservations and worries about the idea of national health insurance? If you no longer have reservations, what caused you to change your mind?
When: Thursday, Nov 20, 6:30pm
Where: 215 NE 6th St. Apt. C. If coming from University Avenue and 13th St, head east on University Avenue one (1) mile until you reach the Melting Pot and Downtown Library. Turn Left onto NE Boulevard, then turn right onto NE 2nd Avenue, then turn left onto NE 6th Street. The house is two-story, white, and and has a porch swing (right side of the street). Look for NOW signs. Parking is on the street/surrounding areas. The apartment is upstairs, accessed by a stairwell at the back of the house. If you will need assistance climbing the stairs, please call Claudia at (352) 235-4088.
