Get on the bus!

If you're not busy tomorrow (Dec. 2nd) and wish to spend an exciting and constructive day in our nation's capitol rallying for reproductive rights, then you should get on the bus!

Date: Wednesday, December 2, 2009
Time: 1:00am - 11:45pm
Location: Washington , DC

Join Planned Parenthood of Southern New England and pro-choice supporters from CT for our National Lobby Day on December 2nd. We have reserved one bus leaving from New Haven and making a stop in Stamford and headed to DC to bring our message to Congress on passing health care reform that ensures women's access to reproductive health care that includes abortion coverage. If you would like to join us please respond to organizing@ppsne.org.

The tentative agenda is:
Leave New Haven from Planned Parenthood office: Wednesday December 2 at 1am
Stop in Stamford : 2:00am
Arrive in Washington DC : 8am (with a stop for a quick breakfast at fast food spot)
9:30-10:30am: Lobby briefing on the Hill (Location TBA)

When I saw the title come up on my RSS links I thought it was going to be another diary on Palin's "fake" bus tour for her book signing.

Glad it was on something much more important.
