Oct. 20 is national day of action for health care reform. Actions you can take…

We’re passing this on from our friends at NetworkLobby (and below that, a health care reform prayer from our friends at Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good).

JOIN NetworkLobby ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 20, FOR A

NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION FOR HEALTH CARE REFORM

The United States is the only industrialized democracy in the world that has not made the commitment to ensure health care coverage for all its people. This is a moral scandal, and we call on Congress to approve a reform plan that guarantees accessible, affordable, quality care for everyone in the U.S. Join with people of faith and organizations all around the country to make your voice heard in support of quality health care reform!

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

  • Send an e-mail: Visit  http://www.networklobby.org and look for the “Contact Congress” box on the right. Enter your zip code, click “GO,” and select “Healthcare Reform: It’s time to deliver” under “Write to Your Elected Officials.”
  • Sign on to our letter to congressional leaders: Visit http://www.networklobby.org/Oct20signon.html to add your name and comments to thousands of other signatures on a letter that we will deliver to the leaders of Congress on Tuesday, October 20.
  • Make 3 Phone Calls: Tell your 2 Senators and your resentative that you want them to pass a healthcare reform bill that fixes our broken system. Call the Capitol Switchboard at 888-797-8717 or(202) 224-3121 and ask for the appropriate office. Identify yourself and leave a brief message in support of healthcare reform.
  • Put this flyer in your window (house or car) or another visible place to remind others that there are people of faith working for health care reform!

Here’s a health care reform prayer from Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good http://www.catholicsinalliance.org/node/21233
