Press Conference Tomorrow To Celebrate MOTHERS Act

OK. I realize this is last minute but I didn't have any of the details until just now. If you are anywhere near DC and want to show up to support the Melanie Blocker Stokes MOTHERS Act passage:

Representative Bobby Rush (D-IL) and Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) will be hosting a press conference tomorrow (Thursday). Carol Blocker will be there, whose daughter the bill was named after. So will I (cool!), and Susan Stone (representing PSI) and people representing the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (yes, they changed their name from College to Congress for some unknown reason) and the American Psychological Association.

It's Thursday, May 6th. 11:30am at the Senate Swamp, Upper Senate Park (next to the Russell Senate Office Building). The rain location is S-120 in the U.S. Capitol.

Senate Swamp. Sounds lovely, doesn't it?
