Black Friday Action on Health Care

Come and support Health Care for America Now (HCAN) as we pass out the Grinch Flyer!

Meet us at the corner of Forbes and Shady at 11:30 AM for an hour's worth of flyering. Please bring your cellphone if you have one, so we can get passersby to call the number!

We will distribute the flyer in front of Pro Bikes, 5876 Forbes Avenue, because they sell North Face Wiseman products.

The flyer urges holiday shoppers to call Wiseman’s retail companies at 336-424-6192 and express their displeasure with his role in blocking health care reform. Specifically, the flyer says that Eric Wiseman is playing Grinch with Health Care Reform.

This event has been canceled.

Glad to see that I'm not the only person in Western Penn. to be concern with the level of health care for poor folks.
