FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
GREEN PARTY TO HOST REGIONAL CONFERENCE ON HEALTHCARE AND LABOR
Asbury Park, NJ – The Green Party of Monmouth County and the Green Party of New Jersey (GPNJ) will host a conference addressing healthcare and labor issues on Sunday, February 27, 12:30 – 4:30 p.m. at the Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel, 1401 Ocean Avenue, Asbury Park, NJ. The event, which will be held at the Dauphin Grille within the hotel, includes a full buffet lunch and live music by singer-songwriters Jeff Saxon and special guest Tom Neilson.
Registration is $50 per person, with subsidies available to those who require a discount. Payments can be made through our secure ecommerce gateway. Contact registrar David Petrovich at firstname.lastname@example.org 732-571-9464. The event home page can be accessed at:http://tinyurl.com/6x848w6.
Keynote speakers include Maryland pediatrician Margaret Flowers, M.D., Congressional Fellow for Physicians for a National Health Program; Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for Governor of New York State in 2010; and Hugh Giordano, a labor organizer with the United Food and Commercial Workers, Local 152, in Philadelphia;.
“Sooner or later the country is going to have to reduce the wastefully high cost of corporate for-profit health insurance,” said Steve Welzer, a member of the Green Party’s state executive committee. “A single-payer system (Improved Medicare for All) would eliminate the corporate insurance middle-man, cut the price and expand coverage to include dental and vision, and assure that every American enjoys guaranteed quality health care. A goal of the Feb. 27 conference will be to educate the public about the real issues in order to counter the propaganda that dominated the debate last year.”
“The Green Party message on healthcare is eminently reasonable,” added Lynn Petrovich, C.P.A., who will present a “Rip-off Report” on hospital accounting at the event. “Our “sick” care system, which places profits before people can no longer be tolerated and it is up to Americans to demand change.”
Synergy and mutual support among labor activists, healthcare reformers, and those committed to the building of a green economy will be a common theme throughout the conference presentations.
