2019 SINGLE PAYER STRATEGY CONFERENCE
OCTOBER 18-20, 2019
Portland, OR

Join Us!

Healthcare-NOW and the Labor Campaign for Single Payer Healthcare invite you to join hundreds of activists for a weekend of inspiration and strategy to win single-payer national healthcare! Our social movement has grown rapidly during the Trump era, and this year we've won historic advances in the House of Representatives. At the same time, the healthcare industry has launched a well-funded opposition campaign. This year's conference will highlight effective strategies and tactics from across the country, and make sure we continue to grow our movement through a crucial 2020 and beyond.

When & Where:

The conference will be held at two locations in Downtown Portland the weekend of October 18-20:

Friday & Saturday the conference will take place at the The Eliot Center on 1211 SW Main St.

Sunday the conference will take place at The Benson Hotel at 309 SW Broadway, a 10-minute walk from the other venue.

Step 1: Fill out the Registration Form

Registration is $100 per attendee. The final registration deadline is Friday, October 4. Due to space constraints at our venue, we will close registration once we hit 500 attendees, which could happen much earlier than the registration deadline - please register early to ensure your spot at the conference!

A limited number of scholarships are available to those for whom the registration fee would pose a financial barrier. We unfortunately do not have the resources to support attendees with travel or hotel costs, though!

Your registration gives you access to the entire conference, as well as continental breakfast on Saturday and Sunday and a boxed lunch on Saturday of the conference.

Registration does not book you a hotel room - proceed to Step 2!

STEP 2 - Book Your Hotel Room

We have reserved a block of discounted rooms at The Benston Hotel at $175 per night. You can book a room with one king-sized bed or two double beds at this rate, and our rate can be applied for up to 2 days after the conference if you wish to extend your stay. The cut-off date for getting the group rate is Friday, October 4, but we also have limited rooms in our block and may run out prior to October 4th! You can book your room by phone or email:

If you need solidarity housing, we'll do our best to find a place for you with a local activist. Please fill out this form. The cut-off date for applying for solidarity housing is October 4th. If you'd like to offer solidarity housing, amazing! Please fill out this form.

STEP 3 - Support the Conference With an Ad in the Program Book!

Purchasing an ad or a name listing in the program book of the Single Payer Strategy Conference is a great way to show your support for the movement, to thank particular organizations or individuals, or to get the word out about your work! Every purchase of an ad or name listing comes with a complimentary registration to the Conference. The deadline for submitting ad copy is Friday, October 4.
