On Monday, Tony Cani and Michael Chapman of Change That Works campaign, a project of the Service Employees International Union which is focused on building a grassroots network across the country in support of healthcare reform, joined us to talk about healthcare. Michael, a registered nurse, told us one particularly harrowing story of a man who, along with his family, was living the American dream until a healthcare crisis took it all away.

Tomorrow, you can join Michael, Tony, and other Nashvillians in support of healthcare reform as they gather at 12 noon at Congressman Jim Cooperâ€™s office on Church Street to sign a “Declaration for Affordable Healthcare” and to present personal mementos demonstrating what they have had to give up in order to afford health insurance coverage.
This event has been coordinated with other events organized nationwide by the SEIU and Change That Works to call on Congress “to make healthcare more affordable, give people the freedom to choose their coverage, and offer the working people the same quality healthcare that members of Congress receive.”
Congressman Cooper’s office is located at 605 Church Street (at the downtown public library).
