From the where are they now file?... former CNN internet reporter, Jacki Schechner is now the National Communications Director for Health Care for America Now.
I'm now the Director of Communications for Health Care for America Now - a new campaign launching Tuesday (tomorrow) here in DC and 52 cities around the country (including more than 30 state capitals). The steering committee includes ACORN, AFSCME, Americans United for Change, Campaign for America's Future, Center for American Progress Action Fund, Center for Community Change, MoveOn, NEA, National Women's Law Center, Planned Parenthood, SEIU, UFCW, and USAction. We've got more than 100 member organizations so far and are adding more everyday (I know because I have to keep updating the press materials!).
