Jackie Speier - Keynote Speaker- "The Truth About Social Security" Public Forum - June 11th - San Mateo Main Library

Why is America's Social Security system under attack? Do many of those who call for its reform secretly mean to eliminate it?
Is it true that Social Security is not solvent and must be changed drastically?

On Saturday, June 11, the answers to those questions and others will be discussed when San Mateo County Democracy for America (SMCDFA),
with co-sponsors Pacifica Democrats, Peninsula Democratic Coalition, the San Mateo County Democratic Party, and the National Committee

To Preserve Social Security and Medicare host a public forum,"The Truth About Social Security". The event will take place between 1:00PM and
3:00PM in the Oak Room of the San Mateo Main Library, 55 W. Third Ave in San Mateo.
The forum's panel of distinguished experts includes:

  • Congresswoman Jackie Speier (CD-12), Keynote Speaker, and a leader in the battle in
    Washington to protect Social Security,

  • Katie Johnson, Grassroots Manager, National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, an organization
    that through it candidate endorsements, campaign contributions and grassroots activities strongly opposes the privatization of Social Security
  • Jodie Reid, Executive Director/Activist, California Alliance for Retired Americans (CARA), which is building a statewide network of hundreds of organizations
    educating and informing both the public and elected officials about issues that affect the wellbeing of California's older adults

The panel will explain how Social Security can be saved, while debunking the myths and lies and demystifying the Social Security debate currently underway
in Washington, DC, and across the country. Forum attendees will learn how to ensure that their opinions are heard, as the battle to protect and preserve
Social Security wages on.

Admission is free. Space is limited. Light refreshments included. For further information, please contact Barbara Arietta at or Ellyn O'Toole
