Events Set for Medicare/Medicaid and Social Security Celebrations

The July 30 anniversary of Medicare/Medicaid and the August 13 anniversary of Social Security are coming up. Texas retirees have set an ambitious program of celebrating our past accomplishments and committing ourselves to continue fighting. We have seven celebrations set up and are looking for more.

Social Security
Social Security anniversary is August 14

Folks who are organizing events may want to use some of the videos I prepared:

The work will begin with contacting activists in the area of every event. Volunteers are needed for phone banking, no experience necessary!

JUMP IN AND GIVE US A HAND!

Each activity will be packed with information about our strategies for winning further gains. We will emphasize the importance of the 2016 elections from the top of the ballot to the very bottom.

Retirees have much to lose and everything to gain this year!

After the activities, we’ll still need volunteers to follow up and make sure we’re working together for a better retirement future for ourselves, our kids, and our grandkids.
