This Saturday – August 29th from 10 am until 11 am – there will be a major health care rally in downtown Portland. As you know, Congress will return soon from their August recess to consider health care reform. Opponents of reform have been well funded and organized…spending tens of millions to defeat reform…but 47 million of our fellow citizens still have no health insurance and that number grows every day. This is a moral issue that all people of faith should be concerned with.
The “Health Care Can’t Wait” rally will take place at:
Terry Schrunk Plaza (Portland, OR)
SW 3rd Ave
Between Jefferson St & Madison St
Portland, OR 97204
That’s right in front of the Green-Wyatt Federal Building.
At the request of Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, I have been invited to speak at the rally as a representative of Oregon’s faith community.
It should be a beautiful August morning in Portland. Please take the time out of your busy summer schedule to show your support for health care reform.
