Next Wednesday night, grab a cookie (ok, or healthy snack) and join MomsRising members across the nation on the phone or via the web for a cozy kitchen table chat about health reform and what it means for women and kids. We'll have experts on the line who can answer your questions and you'll have an opportunity to share your ideas as well.

We'll make it as easy for you to participate from the comfort of your home. Simply sign up to join us on Wednesday, October 14, 2009 at 9 p.m.EST/6 p.m.PST by clicking here: Sign up today. It's as easy as pie. After you sign up, we'll send you call-in and log-in information via email. Sweat pants and bathrobes are very appropriate attire for this high-powered conversation.

Why this kitchen table conversation now? The coming weeks will be critical for making sure that health reform benefits kids and families.  Learn more about what's in the current healthcare proposals, and how to make sure that the White House, Congress, and leading advocates for women and kids know our priorities. We'll be taking notes on what you think and writing a blog, as well as sharing your thoughts with leaders after our conversation.

Here's more information:  We're calling this our "kitchen table" chat because it's going to be an informal opportunity for you-- from the comfort of your very own home--to hear from experts, ask questions, and share your ideas about how to support health reform, as well as why you need health reform.  Your call will include:

* An overview of major issues for women and children in health reform from experts Jocelyn Guyer from Georgetown's Center for Children and Families and Lisa Codispoti from The National Women's Law Center, two of the leading national advocates for women and children in health reform.

* Questions and comments: Our experts will answer your questions and you will have a chance to share your highest priorities for health reform.

* What's next?  We will ask for and share ideas on how we can help in this final stretch of health reform. We also want to hear about why you believe health reform is important.  And we'll share your ideas, thoughts, and priorities with the White House, Congress, and our partner organizations.

Sign up now to join us around our virtual kitchen table and chat about women and kids in health reform today! Look forward to chatting!
