    Power, Sex and #metoo: Now what?

     

    “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything... . .Grab them by the p---y. You can do anything.”

    Sexual Harassment will be an important issue driving women to vote in 2018 and beyond.

    The list of power players keeps growing.  Thousands of reports of sexual harassment on #MeToo keep coming in.  The risks are rising.  
    But where it leads remains to be seen.  

    Join us for a panel discussion on our responsibilities and options as a party, and how we can best mobilize voters around this important issue.

    • What can we do to reassure women voters that despite recent bipartisanship shown on this subject, the parties could not be more different in their approaches to women’s issues?
    • How can we empower male voters to see gender violence as a men’s issue too?
    • What legislative, structural and cultural changes need to be made?
    • What are our next steps?

    All are welcome to join in this vital conversation!

    Healthcare Stories: No financial worries when recovering from hosptalization #DAresists #Medicare4all

    No financial worries when recovering from hosptalization #DAresists #Medicare4all

    In the Netherlands, I spent 2 weeks in the hospital to treat a major infection. I never saw a bill. I didn't have to worry about how I was going to pay. My treatment in the hospital and recovery at home was fully covered and all administration was handled by the insurance company. I could focus on getting well.
