Minnesotans at the Iowa Regional White House Forum on Health Care Reform

 

Physicians for a National Health Plan, California Nurses Organizing Committee, the Campaign for the Minnesota Health Plan, Minnesota Universal Health Care Coalition, Greater Minnesota Health Care Coalition and other single-payer organizations converged on Des Moines, Iowa for the March 23 Regional White House Forum. The Forum included leading politicians from the upper Midwest and citizen activists. We staged a rally outside on the cold, rainy day that received great media attention.
