Health Care Rally

The recess is winding down and its time to put the pressure on. We want to make sure the last thing our members of congress see before they go back to the Capitol is a mass demonstration of Oregonians pushing for real health care reform!

Terry Schrunk Plaza
SW 3rd & SW Madison
Downtown Portland

Wendell Potter, former insurance executive turned health care advocate, will be our featured speaker, along with other community leaders and everyday folks like you.
Wendell Potter on the Bill Moyers Journal program:

How to make this a success:

We are challenging everybody who attends, and even those who cannot, to get 5 of your friends, coworkers, or family members to the rally.

Make your own signs calling for quality affordable health care for all.

We need all the help we can get. if you would like to volunteer on the day of the rally, or have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

To your health,

Betsy Dillner
Oregon Health Care for America Now
