We’re hitting the streets for Medicare for All!

Medicare for All could soon become a reality! National leaders including Senators Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris are fighting for Medicare for All, while the California State Democratic Party has embraced our very own plan for single payer.

Now it’s up to us to show the rest of the country that it can work. Californians have a real opportunity to lead the nation in establishing a single-payer universal health coverage system for all. To do that, we need to continue the pressure on California Assembly Democrats to push single payer forward in California.

This weekend, Courage Campaign and our partners from the HealthyCA campaign will host events during which we’ll talk to voters in every single Assembly district — including yours.

You can help give the campaign a huge boost by joining us at an event in your district! The more voters we can reach, the better our chance of passing single payer when the session reconvenes in January. Can you join us?

Click here to find an event near you!

The Affordable Care Act was an important step forward for health care, cutting the number of uninsured in California by half.(1) But more and more, Californians are realizing that the true solution is to get the profit out of health care.

If we can make single payer a reality in California, then we can show the rest of the country that it works.

To get single payer going in California, we need to make sure that Assembly Democrats know that voters in their district demand Medicare for All! Join our Medicare for All Weekend of Action and help make single payer a reality in California!

Click here to RSVP!

Yours in the fight for health care for all,

Mahdi, along with Annie, Brenna, Caitlin, Eddie, Emma, Lindsay, Mary, MJ, Molly, Raquel, Scottie, Tim, and William (the Courage team)
