organizers who helped make health care reform a reality 08-20

Shyamsunder: Your name is part of the permanent record‏

Shyamsunder -- 

A few months back, we collected the names of the organizers who helped make health care reform a reality -- our way of marking down in the history books how a grassroots movement made history.

Shyamsunder, you're a part of this "permanent record" -- and I wanted you to see what we did with it.

We set out to come up with an installation that anyone can visit, find their name, and reflect on how we came together to help millions of Americans get access to quality, affordable care. That belongs in the history books, so we decided to take that literally.

It took 76 books to fit more than 400,000 names in the record. Take a look:

And next time you're in the neighborhood, be sure to drop in and find your name!

P.S. -- I have to share one more photo. The other day, my mom came by to see her own name on the wall. She got so excited that she pulled out her phone and took a picture of her name on the display:
