Below is information about our next Soundoff in South Bronx

Sound off for Health Care Reform on October 22nd from 7-9 pm at the Betances Community Center located at 465 St. Ann’s Avenue (6 Train to St. Ann's Avenue), next to the legendary St. Mary’s Park.

Young Voices Nation, Betances Community Center, Freedom Community Center, and Pueblo en Marcha have joined forces to host the third Open Mic Town Hall event to empower our communities to tell Congress that we must have health care reform now!

Come learn about the truth about health care reform and be part of a movement that is working to make history in our generation to reform health care!

Keeping true to his campaign promises of breaking the status quo on education, environment and health care, President Obama has taken radically bold steps to reform health care. The inhumane injustices of our current health care system have activated President Obama to push for health care reform as a priority of national security and the moral imperative for the nation; our current system violates our fundamental basic human rights.

Unfortunately, most of the Republican Congressional leaders have sided with the private health insurance companies that endanger the quality of our care by putting profits over people and they work to stop the process to pass reform. The time to act is NOW to break the stalemate and demand our right for affordable and accessible health care! We need a health care system that provides for all – young and old, rich and poor!

On Thursday, October 22nd help build our movement in any of the following ways:
