ST LOUIS – Citizens in the ‘Show Me’ state lived up to their billing when more than 150 people turned out on Saturday night at the St. Louis Ethical Society to watch ‘SiCKO’ and to hear more about healthcare from American SiCKOs Donna and Larry Smith. The event was a huge success with guests enjoying free popcorn and lemonade provided by volunteers and lingering for more than an hour for a lively question and answer session led by Donna.
Earlier in the day, Missourians for Single Payer (MoSP), led a rally and march in University City, MO, where nurses, patients, and healthcare activists joined together to carry signs and even a coffin to call attention to their work for healthcare reform.
On Sunday, the Ethical Society listened to an address by Donna Smith entitled, “Beyond SiCKO” that included a photo slide show presentation and more education on common sense healthcare reform. The crowd gave Donna a standing ovation following her address, and several audience members told her they now understand and fully support single payer reform as a result of her visit and all of the healthcare weekend activities in St. Louis.
