Dear members of the Hunter Women's Rights Coalition (Hunter Equality),

This Wednesday we are having an important meeting (with free pizza, naturally) about our upcoming fundraiser for the Ali Forney Center as well as how to take action at home against the Stupak Amendment, which, if passed along with the health care reform bill before the Senate, could leave women worse off than before.

There will, however,be a National Day of Action THIS WEDNESDAY in Washington, D.C. -- we encourage you to attend if you can. I've included the information from Planned Parenthood below:
DECEMBER 2, 2009
9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Washington, DC

Please join us to lobby the Senate for health care reform that ensures women's access to reproductive health care.

From Planned Parenthood: Join thousands of others to speak with one voice and let our elected officials know that we support health care reform that protects women's health! Real health reform will respect the right of women to purchase private health insurance that covers comprehensive reproductive health care, including abortion. We hope to see you there! If you can't make it to DC, stop by our Facebook page for online activities through December 2.

If you can't make it to DC,
we will be discussing The Hanger Project during our Wednesday meeting.

If you can't make it to the meeting either,
you can help fight Stupak by calling your Senators: Look them up by state

We are incredibly proud to have worked together throughout this semester and we're very excited for the next. Whether it's in DC, in the clubroom, or online -- we hope to see you by our side in pushing for real health care reform that doesn't leave women behind.

With love and in solidarity,

Hunter Women's Rights Coalition
