White House, March 22: Show Up for healthcare reform

'WE are the ones we have been waiting for' was a line that inspired us throughout the Obama campaign. The problem with health reform is, 'WE' didn't show up. As a result, opponents say, "The PEOPLE" don't want reform - despite polls showing majority support. It's time to show up!

Join the March on Washington- Monday, March 22nd

Meet medical professionals and community members from across the country for a march from the White House to Capitol HiIl. Tell Congress to put people ahead of politics. For more information, go to HEALTHMARCH. To volunteer for sign-making and other event activities, contact Manisha Sharma MD of the National Physicians Alliance at For RSVP links, go to

Moving Forward

A little more than a year ago, I founded NYCforChange because I believed in the power of grassroots to achieve social justice. Thanks to you, NYCforChange has become a leader in the fight for health reform. As the movement grows, so does our membership. Under the leadership of Tim Foley, GreaterNYCforChange has been formed to serve areas beyond NYC. Together, we will continue to fight for social justice - locally, nationally, and globally. If you and I don't, who will?

Thank you
