SICKO Viewers' Guide for People of Faith
Faithful Reform in Health Care has produced a VIEWERS' GUIDE to SICKO for people of faith who care about being a part of the solution in addressing the crisis in U.S. health care. Given the moral tone of the movie, it offers a wonderful opportunity for reflection and dialogue about the moral case for health care reform. This Guide was developed to help facilitate that process.
For those of us who are committed to making health care reform happen in the United States, Michael Moore’s new film SICKO is a must-see. Through laughter and tears, we are drawn into the absurdities of the U.S. health care system. But even more important, with its powerful stories about people who have suffered because they were denied needed health care, the film reminds us that as people of faith we have not yet been the change agents we are meant to be.

A Matriot's Dream is an artistic response to the current health care crisis. It consists of photographs, poems, narratives and statistics that portray in a very personal way what it means to go without needed health care in the U.S. D
