Healthcare is a Human Right

Welcome to Whole Washington. We’re working on a ballot initiative to bring single-payer healthcare to Washington State.

About

We’re a grassroots coalition of healthcare professionals, activists and organizers with a common belief that healthcare is a human right, and Washington should be doing more to provide the best level of care to all residents.

Pam Keeley is an RN of 45 years and has a long career of advocating for human rights. She sees sound health as the foundation of a meaningful and productive life and believes health care is a basic human right.

“The political establishment working in concert with the healthcare industry has shown repeatedly that they have one, over-arching priority: profit for CEOs and dividends for shareholders. We no longer accept this grossly unjust equation. We’re upholding our part of the social contract, it’s time now for the most prosperous in our state to do theirs so that all members of our human family can have the health care they deserve.”
