Join Us for a Special Meeting:

The Healthcare Crisis: Looking for Solutions
Hosted by the Land Stewardship Project & the Minnesota Nurses Association

Tuesday, July 10, 7 p.m.
Registration & Refreshments at 6 p.m.
St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church, 1301 South 4th Street, Marshall, MN 56258 Meeting in Fellowship Hall

RSVP to LSP Organizer Paul Sobocinski at sobopaul@landstewardshipproject.org, 507-430- 1509, or to Geri Katz of the Minnesota Nurses Association at Geri.Katz@mnnurses.org, 651-252-5510

Directions:  St Stephen’s Lutheran Church is located just 1 block west on 4th Street off of Highway 23. 4th Street is south of the intersection of Highway 23 and Highway 59.

Together we will address these topics:

  • Healthcare is a basic need for Minnesotans. When some people are left without affordable, accessible care, it hurts our whole communities. If you’re struggling with healthcare, know that you aren’t alone; we can solve this crisis together. Explore with us what we can do that gives every Minnesotan access to care in a fair, responsible way.
  • Unpack with your neighbors how healthcare costs are impacting people’s lives.
  • Can we agree on the principles of what a high-quality healthcare system would look like?
  • How do we get beyond this divisive political climate, have non-partisan conversations and build for a solution that improves healthcare for all of us? Your health status is neither red, blue nor independent. Can shared values be a link to cross our political divide? How do we talk about healthcare to our neighbors in a civil conversation?
  • Hear a special presentation on a Minnesota Health Plan by Rose Roach, executive director of the Minnesota Nurses Association. She will present a proposal that has the intention of simplifying healthcare in Minnesota and making it accessible to everyone. This plan would do away with co-pays, deductibles and “in-network” and “out-of-network” red tape while protecting health care quality.

Co-sponsors for this meeting include: CURE’s Rural Democracy Project & Marshall Area Peace Seekers.
