News brief: Health care advocates to rally for insurance reform

On Saturday, health insurance reform advocates across Washington will rally at nine separate locations to urge the U.S. Senate to join the House by passing historic health reform legislation before they take their holiday recess.

The nearest gathering will be at Bremerton's Harborside Fountain Park next to the Kitsap Conference Center.

The statewide action has been organized by Health Care for America NOW! and the Healthy Washington Coalition. These two organizations comprise hundreds of groups representing small businesses, labor unions, health care providers and community organizations from across the state.

The event will start at 10:30 a.m. and everyone is invited to attend.
