Free public forum in Bellingham on the future of Social Security

A growing national movement to strengthen and expand Social Security is taking hold, pushing back against decades of misinformation and political attacks by opponents.

Join us for a free public forum on the future of America’s pension — Social Security — on Thursday, June 5th from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. in the Syre Center at Whatcom Community College. Featured speakers include: Terry O’Neill, National President of NOW; Rep. Rick Larsen, D-WA, 2nd District; and Marilyn Watkins, Policy Director, Economic Opportunity Institute.

You’ll get an update on the status of the Social Security system and learn about legislation that will strengthen Social Security for the remainder of this century: the “Strengthening Social Security Act” (House Resolution 3118 and Senate Bill 567).

As the nation’s most efficient, fair, secure and universal source of retirement income, life insurance, and disability insurance available in the United States, Social Security is of critical importance to every American. Join us to learn how we can work together to address the nation’s retirement savings crisis, strengthen family protections for all generations, and secure Social Security financing for generations to come.

    Will there be an online video of this? I am currently working on these issues with leaders in my community but cannot travel that far. Please call me at 269-903-1853 I would love to attend via the net if that is possible.    Ginger Dowdle Creating Change Organizer 269-903-1853 truckindoctor@yahoo.com
