To get the health care debate to reflect women’s issues and concerns, we must join the conversation!

Dynamic conference workshops will prepare you to talk about:

  • Why reproductive health must be included in health reform
  • Why dependent health insurance is a women’s Issue
  • How health care must become culturally competent
  • What kinds of childbirth choices women want to see included
  • What are the health concerns of older women
  • How can we better support women who are providing care at home for elderly relatives

Learn valuable lessons from advocates in states like Massachusetts that have been experimenting with health care reform:

  • How you can use personal stories to advocate for health reform
  • How you can do effective grassroots organizing
  • How to build a health reform law based on existing models
  • How to decide on things like whether to require individuals to purchase health insurance
  • How you can work with the progressive faith community in your state to advocate for health care for all
