Help Campaign for SB 562 In So Cal

  • When: Saturday, April 8, 2017
  • Where: West Covina & Riverside, CA
  • Posted: Apr 5th, 2017

From our Healthy California Campaign Friends:

Save the date!  Saturday, April 8th.

It’s here!!!! S.B. 562, The Healthy California Act, full bill language was released last Thursday!  Before we can win guaranteed healthcare to all Californians, it has to pass a vote coming soon in the State Senate Health Committee.  The members of that committee need to hear from constituents ASAP.  Join other Healthy California supporters to knock on some doors and spread the Healthy California message in key senators’ home districts!

Millions of Americans dodged the bullet of losing their healthcare coverage last week when the effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act collapsed.  But there is still great insecurity and uncertainty in households throughout the country.  We know that Paul Ryan and company will be back to try again.

Californians don’t have to just wait and hope for the best.  The Golden State now has the opportunity to create a healthcare model for the whole country with S.B. 562, the Healthy California Act.  The Act will establish a “Medicare for All” style program that would not only cover all Californians, but lower costs for families and businesses.  And, it is the real alternative to the cruel path to pain offered by congressional leadership and the White House.

Join us April 8th to fight for the healthcare security we all deserve!

California’s Medicare for All Legislation SB 562

  • When: Saturday, April 15, 2017
  • Where: San Francisco, CA
  • Posted: Apr 5th, 2017

How does SB 562 provide health care?

How can we campaign for SB 562?

Trump and the Republican congress want to gut the Affordable Care Act, privatize Medicare, cut back on Medicaid, and privatize the Veteran’s Administration.

In California, we have the chance to legislate our own health care program that covers everyone, has no co-pays, no deductibles, and no premiums. SB 562 will remove the insurance industry from our lives. Join us for an exciting panel discussion to learn more about how you can help ALL Californians win the health care they deserve!

WHEN: Saturday, April 15th @ 3:00 PM

WHERE: 2940 16TH ST in SF  (One block from Mission St and the 16th St BART)

Health Care Justice Rally @ Trump Tower

  • When: Friday, January 13, 2017
  • Where: New York, NY
  • Posted: Jan 7th, 2017

We are in a life or death fight for our health care. Republican proposals for health care reform will cause millions of people to lose insurance coverage. Those who have coverage will see the return of illegal tactics private insurance corporations to deny and restrict care. Remember, the only way they make money is when they don’t have to pay for the health care you need.

Join health care justice advocates at Trump Tower on Jan 13th just hours before the annual Single Payer Strategy Conference begins to point to the only solution that is truly universal, and guaranteed to provide high quality, affordable health care: Medicare for All!
