Save the VA- The Battle for Veteran's Healthcare

Please join Veterans for Peace, Oregon PSR, and others at a special event with prize winning journalist Suzanne Gordon, author of the recent book "The Battle for Veterans' Healthcare". Check out her blog at www.suzannecgordon.com

Suzanne will discuss the value and importance of the VA healthcare system, and the current threats to the VA from privatization and outsourcing. She'll be joined by a panel of folks who will update you on these threats to the VA, to Veterans, and to VA workers . And together, we'll talk about ways that Veterans, labor unions, and the public together can take action to fight back.

All are welcome. Doors open at 5:30 for light refreshments; program starts at 6 pm. No charge.

The event will be held in Fuller Hall of the First Unitarian Church, which is downstairs. Enter the church through the breezeway on SW 12th, in the middle of the block between SW Main and SW Salmon. Wheelchair access is nearby on SW 12th, middle of the block, as well (there will be a clear sign).
