Urgent Update - Date & Location Changed: Rep John Conyers will speak in San Diego on SUNDAY!!!!! 2:00-3:00pm, WorldBeat Center, 2100 Park Blvd, San Diego
We received notice that Rep. John Conyers, Jr. will be delayed in Detroit until Sunday. I am urgently informing you that Mr. Conyers will NOT be part of the Saturday Healthcare forum, which will still take place as scheduled at the Jacobs Center (see details below)
Instead, Freshman Congressman Eric Massa of New York, a staunch HR 676 advocate, will speak in Mr Conyers' place, joining Rep Diane Watson of California and Gregory Knoll, Esq.
Rescheduled: Congressman Conyers looks forward to meeting single-payer healthcare activists on Sunday July 12th, from 2:00 - 3:00pm at the WorldBeat Center in Balboa Park
Congressman Conyers will take your questions about how we can work to pass real healthcare reform legislation this session. The San Diego SinglePayer Healthcare Coalition will present Rep Conyers with a special award for his leadership on this issue.
