The Michigan Democratic Party and Indivisible groups around the state are teaming up for a series of town halls as the debate over how to change the nation's health care system continues in Congress. 

Bloomfield Hills

11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, September 9

Birmingham Unitarian Church, 38651 Woodward Ave., Bloomfield Hills

Michigan Democratic Party Chair Brandon Dillon said the events are meant to educate people about the questions they have regarding potential changes to health care and continue discussions on how to protect their benefits. 

"We will never stop fighting against GOP efforts to eliminate protections for people with pre-existing conditions or their plan to allow insurance premiums to skyrocket, especially for seniors," Dillon said.
