ScaleMore than seventy people joined in yet another lively and informative discussion. Our panel invigorated and inspired us: Linda Leu, organizer for Health Access and the Health Care for America Now campaign, and also a volunteer with Organizing for America, formerly Obama for America; longtime progressive activist Don Bechler, chair of Single Payer Now; Justin Davis, M.D., Potrero Hill primary- and urgent-care physician; Catherine Dodd, RN, Mayor Newsom’s Deputy Chief of Staff overseeing Health, Human Services, Aging Services and Children Youth and Family Services.

Take action:
• July 9th rally at noon with for a strong public option, at Senator Feinstein’s office.
• July 11th health care canvass in the neighborhood with Organizing for America.
• Single Payer Now has classes on single-payer, and many more opportunities for activism.

More about the meeting: an article by Bonnie Baron in the Potrero View, and a story by Linda Post on San Francisco FYI.
