Holiday Drinks with Daschle!

Posted in Uncategorized by raisingwomensvoices on December 23, 2008

Having trouble fitting a health policy discussion into your holiday plans?  Still want to get together with friends and send your ideas about health reform to HHS Secretary-Designate Tom Daschle? Here’s a fun way to do it!

Raising Women’s Voices staff partnered with colleagues to organize a special version of the community health forum. On December 17th, at the monthly Reproductive Health Happy Hour in New York, 35 young activists gathered, in true community meeting style, to share their thoughts with Tom Daschle. Check out the video!

We thought the country’s next health czar might be too busy to join us, so we brought our own cardboard cutout of a smiling, fashionable Tom Daschle, complete with a Raising Women’s Voices button. Over sodas, juices and some fun holiday drinks, we asked the following questions: What do you want to tell Tom Daschle about how to fix our broken health system?  What are your biggest health care concerns? Why is reproductive health care critical for health care reform? See what these activists had to say!
