We urge you to reach out to your community and host Sick Around America watching parties on and after March 31st.
Sick Around America, a compelling and timely documentary exposing the serious consequences of getting sick in the United States, will premiere on PBS on March 31st. It is the sequel to the highly acclaimed Frontline documentary, Sick Around the World.
“As the worsening economy leads to massive job losses—potentially forcing millions more Americans to go without health insurance—FRONTLINE travels the country examining the nation’s broken health care system and explores the need for a fundamental overhaul. Veteran FRONTLINE producer Jon Palfreman dissects the private insurance system, a system that not only fails to cover 46 million Americans but also leaves millions more underinsured and at risk of bankruptcy, in Sick Around America, airing Tuesday, March 31, 2009, at 9 P.M. ET on PBS (check local listings).” – Frontline Press Announcement.
Here is a toolkit for guidelines and suggestions on outreach, education, and raising money as you organize your Viewing Party for this film. Circulate this announcement to your coalition members to increase the number of house parties around the country.
