Bernie Sanders will be doing another tour of town hall meetings at the end of August on the 28th & 29th in Canaan, Island Pond, Newport, Craftsbury Common, Barton, and Morrisville to talk about health care, education, and the economy.
Earlier this month we sent a delegation of more than 10 HCHR volunteers to follow Bernie to each of his Southern Vermont events, and were also joined by dozens of local volunteers and HCHR supporters. We were all overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and support shown by both the Senator and the meeting participants as panelists and community members continued to voice their demand for a more equitable, affordable, and participatory health care system for Vermont! Read more about the outcome of the previous events here.
We're hoping to get another large delegation out to this next round of town hall meetings to continue to show support for true health care reform. Last year senators from across the nation held town meetings to discuss health care reform but were met by opponents who disrupted conversation and delayed constructive meeting discussion. However, in Vermont, we had so many HCHR supporters in attendance, it was us who out-voiced the opponents! Help us to ensure we do this again!
We're looking for volunteers to help with tabling, getting petitions signed, and organizing. Please come with friends to hear Bernie speak , enjoy some free food, and to help build our movement! If you'd like to join us please contact Kate at email@example.com or call 861-4892.
