PDA hosts: "Healthcare not warfare," 1/28

Remember our amazing Save our Jobs rally back in September? JwJers across the country mobilized to let big business know that it was time for workers to see some kind of return on the bailouts that we paid for with our taxes.

Well, you may also remember that Progressive Democrats for America (PDA) co-sponsored and mobilized for many of those rallies and brown bag vigils across the country. This month, PDA is set to host a forum/potluck called "Healthcare not Warfare" next Friday at the William Way Community Center here in Philadelphia at 1315 Spruce Street. The panel will include two amazing ladies and longtime JwJ supporters: Kathy Black (AFSCME District Council 47, President of CLUW, co-convenor of US Labor Against the War) and Alice Hoffman (Social Security Works advocate, labor history badass). I'll also be joining the panel--here's the full speaking list:

Tim Carpenter, national director, Progressive Democrats of America (PDA)
Chuck Pennacchio, Ph.D, executive director of Health Care for All Pennsylvania
Gwendolyn Snyder, director of Philadelphia Jobs with Justice
Bill Deckhart, coordinator of Coalition for Peace Action
Kathy Black, co-convenor of USLAW
Alice Hoffman from Social Security Works

I'd love to see any JwJ'ers who are able to make it out! If you're interested in attending, you can register online at the PDA website.
