Imagine if the focus of the healthcare system was to actually...wait for it...CARE for you.
Mark your calendar for Thursday, June 24 at 12:00 Noon PDT when universal health care champion Michael Lighty will guide us in harnessing the power to picture life when we all enjoy the freedom to access great health care. Michael will be joined by Robert Davis, Dmin, MDiv and Stephany Rose Spaulding, Ph.D., as well as US Rep. Joe Neguse and others via video.
Michael Lighty has organized, advocated and developed policy for Improved Medicare for All nationally and in California for 29 years. He served as health care constituency director for Bernie 2020 and is President of Healthy California Now, the single payer coalition of organizations representing 6 million Californians. He served as director of public policy for National Nurses United from 1994-2018 and as national director for Democratic Socialists of America in the 90s. He’s on the Board of Directors of Peoples Action; Progressive Democrats of America; and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Freedom Center in Oakland, CA. Follow him on Twitter: @mlighty60
Imagine a spring where every child with a bee allergy has an Epipen because our shared health care system knows that’s absolutely the right thing for them to have. Imagine a new health care reality, a new normal. That’s how change begins.
