On Tuesday evening, April 9, the Beyond Obamacare forum, with Michael Dembrow and three compelling personal story-tellers, was the culmination of a great deal of effort and cheerful volunteer support on behalf of the District 45 Health Care Action Group. This group was formed five months ago at a house party with a list of about 20 people in zip code 97213. We succeeded in bringing about the forum which attracted over 100 people, had the support of at least 20 people manning tables and collected over $600. It was a phenomenal success, inspiring health reform activists and hopefully launching more local organizations.
