Where: 
Mt. Carmel Baptist Church

Chicago, IL
Overview: 

Not specifically a single-payer event; but supported by organziations that work for national improved Medicare for all (which may be a topic of discussion), and very relevant.

Chicago Jobs with Justice Workers' Rights Board hearing: Veterans and VA workers unite to save the VA. 

Sponsors include Iraq Veterans Against the War, American Federation of Government Employees Local 789, Chicago Jobs with Justice, National Nurses United, and Vietnam Veterans Against the War, among others. PNHP Illinois has endorsed this event as well. 

Veterans, and experts including anti-VA-privatization journalist Suzanne Gordon, will talk about what privatization of the VA would do to veterans. 

Light refreshments will be served.
