Whole Washington is a grassroots coalition of healthcare professionals and volunteers from across Washington State. Whole Washington endorses both state and national efforts and supports organizations and candidates working to make Universal Healthcare a reality. We fight for single payer healthcare at the national level and pursue a state-based model, using both the initiative and legislative process.
The Washington Health Trust
Ballot Initiative 1471
The Washington Health Trust will be the first state-wide, publicly financed, not-for-profit healthcare system in the U.S.
Instead of many private insurance companies and multiple programs, one public trust will pay the healthcare expenses of Washington State residents.
This bill was written by citizens, for citizens, free from the influence of corporate and special interests. The goal is comprehensive healthcare, free at the point of service, delivered to all.
The I-1471 Campaign is in full swing!
We have petitions, and they're making their way across the state!
We need to collect 400,000 signatures by the end of the year to qualify for the ballot. Read more about the Initiative Process.
Now is a great time to volunteer and get the campaign off to a strong start.
