TUESDAY IN ANCHORAGE: Alaskans, Organizing for America To Hold “Time to Deliver” Health Insurance Reform Event


October 20, 2009

Anchorage event is one of many events happening all across the country to build support for health insurance reform

Alaska Organizing for America (OFA), a grassroots project of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) committed to supporting President Obama’s agenda for change, will hold a ‘Time to Deliver’ health insurance reform event in Anchorage on Tuesday. Local supporters of reform will ask their neighbors, friends and family to call their members of Congress to show them that Alaskans support health insurance reform. As momentum builds and we get closer than ever to reform, OFA volunteers from all the across the country will attend these “Time to Deliver” events on Tuesday in living rooms, coffee shops and senior centers to continue building support for the President’s plan.

The OFA events on Tuesday are part of a larger nationwide “Time to Deliver” effort that includes events from other organizations supporting health insurance reform across the country. Throughout the day, members of the OFA email list will be encouraged to call their members of Congress by using OFA’s online neighbor-to-neighbor call tool. OFA is working to set a record of 100,000 calls to Congress placed or committed to in a single day nationwide.

This effort comes at a critical time in the health insurance reform debate.  Since the summer, support for health insurance reform has been growing, and we're closer than ever to making reform a reality.  That's because at its core, the President’s reform will achieve three goals that are critical to all Americans— it will provide stability and security to those who have insurance, more quality, affordable choices to those who don't, and reign in the skyrocketing cost of health care for families, businesses and government.

OFA is committed to building on and strengthening the historic grassroots network created during the campaign to elect President Obama. In recent weeks the group held events with doctors and health care professionals who shared their personal stories about America’s broken health care system. Since June 6th, OFA has held nearly 20,000 events in all 50 states and every congressional district encouraging support for President Obama's plan for health insurance reform.
