John Glaser, northeast grassroots manager for the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, will speak on “Medicare & Social Security: Are They Headed for the Scrap Heap?” 7:30 p.m. Monday in Jaqua Auditorium, Hugel Science Center room 103. Free pizza will be provided.

Although sponsored by College Democrats, the lecture will be nonpartisan, says College Democrats president Christina Morgan ’05 (Flemington, N.J.), a double major in history and government & law and public health.

“Social Security and Medicare are very important issues that, as young adults, we don’t often pay attention to — and we really need to, especially with the election rapidly approaching,” she says. “There are tremendous differences between John Kerry and George W. Bush in terms of what they perceive should be in the future of these programs, and I think it’s critical that each of us take the time to understand what those differences are and really take them into consideration when we go out to vote on November 2.”

The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare is an educational and advocacy organization based in Washington, D.C. It’s mission is “to protect, preserve, promote, and ensure the financial security, health, and the wellbeing of current and future generations of maturing Americans.”

Before joining the group, Glaser lived and worked overseas, leading the United Way’s international program for most of his career. In that role, he helped communities create social service programs for seniors, children, and the disabled. He has masters’ degrees in social work and business administration.
