Affordable Care Act - Learn More and Celebrate

Celebrate the 2nd anniversary
of the Affordable Care Act

Thursday, March 22 -- 4:00 PM
La Paloma Sabanera Coffeehouse
405 Capitol Avenue, Hartford

Featured Speaker:
Richard Kirsch
Author of
Fighting For Our Health
The Epic Battle to Make Health Care a Right in the United States

Richard Kirsch, a senior fellow at the Roosevelt Institute, spent three years on the front lines as head of the Washington, D.C.-based advocacy group, Health Care for America Now. He worked alongside other progressive organizations from across the country to defeat opposition from powerful insurance industry lobbies resulting in passage of the Affordable Care Act. 
Copies of Kirsch’s books will be available during a book signing scheduled to follow a brief program during which the author and other speakers will talk about the high-stakes this year for states like Connecticut, where powerful vested interests are trying to hijack state reform. Kirsch and others will also discuss the upcoming Supreme Court hearings on the Affordable Care Act
