jen-sorenson-cartoonPolitical cartoons as a media form are brilliant. Kaiser Health News publishes great political cartoons. On June 1st they published a special multi-page cartoon, “An Open Letter To The Supreme Court About Health Insurance” by Jen Sorensen.  This cartoon was shared on the Women Action Media’s listserv, where many media activists are uninsured or under-insured. This community engages in feminist issues including health care policy that increases access to comprehensive health care. It’s also a community that generously shares personal experiences, tips and advice on where someone might find affordable health insurance care coverage.  The responses to this cartoon were universal – they related to the message. See if you do too and comment below.  You can see more of Jen Sorensen’s work at Slowpoke Comics.
