Dear Fellow Coalition Members,
Regardless of how the Democratic primary turns out, Senator Bernie Sanders has done an amazing job bringing national healthcare back into the spotlight. This month, instead of our usual membership meeting on May 24th, we will be sponsoring a wonderful presentation on Medicare For All by ACLC Board member Chad Hood, a doctor with the VA Health System.
Chad has been a long-standing advocate of Medicare for All, and has given several outstanding and well-attended presentations like this around our area. He has updated his offering, taking into account the changes wrought by the Affordable Care Act and the Bernie Sanders campaign.
Indeed, for this special presentation we have invited the HUGE community of Bernie Sanders supporters in Alachua. Chad’s presentation will enable that community and ours, to be more articulate advocates for Medicare for All, and be better able to answer doubts that our opponents raise.
It will be great to have many Labor Coalition members to attend this event to greet the Bernie supporters and make them feel welcome in our community. Many of us are active in both causes, I know.
The meeting will be held at the Mennonite Church at 1236 NW 18th Avenue on Tuesday, May 24th. As always, there will be pizza and snacks with a chance to socialize at 6 PM, and the presentation will begin at 6:30 PM. Please RSVP with the ACLC office at email@example.com or call 375-2832 if you plan to join us.
I look forward to seeing many of you there.
Yours in solidarity,
Just Health Care Committee
Co-chair of Alachua County Labor Coalition
