Labor United for Universal Healthcare's 2017 Summer Garden Party

Date: Saturday, July 15, 2017
Time: 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Location: The home of Cynthia Anderson-Barker and Tim Barker in Westwood/Century City
Description:

From our friends at Labor United for Universal Healthcare:


Join Labor United for Universal Healthcare for its 2017 Summer Garden Party: Healthcare at the Crossroads, July 15, 2017, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm at the home of Cynthia Anderson-Barker and Tim Barker in Westwood/Century City.

Labor United for Universal Healthcare's co-chair Kerry Woods will emcee the event: an afternoon of food and drink, music, comic relief from Gerry Daley, and honoring two individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to healthcare for all.

This year’s honorees are:

Senator Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) was elected in November 2012 to represent the Southeast Los Angeles County cities of the 33rd Senate District. A long-time advocate for immigrant rights, civil rights, and healthcare justice, Sen. Lara introduced SB 4 in 2015 to provide healthcare coverage for all of California’s undocumented immigrant children and SB 10 in 2016 to ensure that everyone, regardless of immigration status, be allowed to purchase healthcare insurance through Covered California. In February of this year, Sen. Lara and Sen. Toni Atkins introduced SB 562, The Healthy California Act, to provide comprehensive universal single payer healthcare coverage to all Californians.

Leslie Gersicoff, Labor United for Universal Healthcare's Secretary, passed away suddenly in April of this year. Leslie was an inspirational leader, a kind mentor, and a tireless volunteer in the Los Angeles progressive community. She served for the past decade as Executive Director of the Jewish Labor Committee Western Region, and gave her time and energy to many causes. She could always be found on the front lines, standing up and speaking out for the vulnerable and the voiceless, fighting for good jobs, quality public services, dignity for the oppressed, and guaranteed healthcare for all.
