Tomorrow's meeting and announcements

First Thursday Meeting at the LGBT Center
to Discuss Single Payer Plan

At tomorrow's general meeting of Queer Justice League we will discuss the broken US healthcare system. Advocates for a single payer plan (longtime activist Eric Sawyer along with Dr. Laura Boylan from Physicians for a National Health Plan) will present views and answer questions in a discussion format.

First Thursday General Meeting
November 1, 2007
8 PM
LGBT Center 208 West 13th Street NYC


Queer Justice League is building itself up toward future feats of strength and superheroism. In particular right now, we need:

-- people who will contribute facts and opinions to this blog
-- people who will help us raise funds
-- people experienced with formal consensus decisionmaking who will help us get comfortable with it as an organization.

If you have any of those skills, or ideas for future actions, please let us know.
