To public servants, volunteers and concern citizens in the Indianapolis community:

Over the next several months, there will be a fierce debate about how to reform our health care system. Now is the time to organize and make sure that real health care reform becomes a reality. On June 6th we will launch the Organizing For America health care campaign across the nation. Please join us for our kick off meeting in Indianapolis. Let's each do our part to ensure that all Americans have affordable health care by the end of 2009.
RSVP for the Organizing For America Health Care Kickoff:
You can begin taking action to support health care reform right now in two important ways:
  1. Share your story of the health care gaps that you, your family or loved ones have experienced. This is one of the most effective ways for OFA and the administration to share with Congress why health care reform is needed in America.
  2. Express your support for President Obama's principles for health care reform.
We look forward to your attendance on June 6th. This is an extremely important grass roots effort for our country. Join us and let's pass health care reform by the end of year!
RSVP for the Organizing For America Health Care Kickoff:
Please forward the attached flyer to friends who are passionate about the need for health care reform and want to take action!
Thank you for all that you do.
