This year marks our 10th anniversary! Marilyn Clement founded Healthcare-NOW! in 2004 originally under the title “Campaign for a National Health Program NOW.”
We are doing something extraordinary for our National Strategy Conference to mark this occasion: we will be hosting a mega single-payer conference jointly with the Labor Campaign for Single-Payer Health Care and the One Payer States group, all of which will converge on Oakland, California the weekend of August 22-24. After ten years, this will be our first National Strategy Conference on the west coast!
The Healthcare-NOW! and Labor Campaign conferences will be hosted at the International Longshore & Warehouse Union Hall in Oakland, and One Payer States will be hosted a short distance away at the California Nurses Association. We expect over 300 activists to attend, and participants will have the option of attending all three conferences if they choose, along with joint plenaries, keynote speakers, and a Saturday night reception that will bring everyone together.
So mark your calendar for the weekend of August 22-24! We’ll have a call for workshop proposals and a registration page up shortly. We are incredibly excited to bring such a large group of inspiring activists together to learn from one another and energize this movement!
