When I first learned about single payer back in college, I remember feeling shocked to learn that health care systems in other parts of the world were so civil and compassionate. I knew I wanted to do whatever I could to advocate for implementation of a single payer health care system here at home. Fast forward 12 years, I'm a proud member of Healthcare Now serving on the board of directors, and am fortunate to work alongside amazing activists and friends who share my same passion for health care justice.
The fact that we as a society collectively allow corporations to profit off of human beings' illnesses and suffering is incomprehensible. We can do better. Enough is enough!
Please give what you can to Healthcare-NOW!
Healthcare-NOW organizes thousands of activists in all 50 states, and supports both state and national single payer efforts. To win, we must build a powerful social movement through education and action, so our work focuses on:
- raising up the voices of patients who feel isolated in their struggles with the healthcare system
- educating activists to gain the knowledge and skills they need to become leaders
- mobilizing our movement through collective action
