This week, we have both familiar and new chances to join our fight for statewide universal healthcare.
First, let’s take a look at our entered signature total.
Weekly Signature Count: 31,545
Volunteers are doing an absolutely incredible job. We’re seeing the increase we need each week to make our goal. We’re grateful to all the volunteers hitting incredible milestones and to the newbies that are just getting started. You’re all amazing!
Whether you’re a seasoned volunteer veteran or you’ve just signed up, our Monday meetings are a great way to connect, ask questions, and get the latest updates.
We’re Seeking Labor Support
If you’re in a trade organization or union, we’d love to hear from you. Are you able to get us in touch with your union’s leadership? Support from the labor sector is critical for success, and we’d love to do a presentation, answer questions, and seek an endorsement. Please email andre.stackhouse@
Additionally, would it be possible to circulate petitions with your co-workers? Meetings and work events can be great places to get signatures. Remember, breakrooms are safe spaces to talk about the campaign! If you’d like petitions mailed to you for your workplace, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION
STOP PRIVATIZATION OF MEDICARE!
In addition to the usual cruelties of the for-profit healthcare system, there is a new plan, called ACO REACH, to privatize traditional Medicare, giving insurance companies and Wall Street even more authority over our lives and bodies.
Join us Friday, July 29, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM, alongside many other advocates at the HHS Regional Office (Columbia Center, 701 5th Avenue, Seattle) to rally against this toxic and damaging plan.
A very special fundraiser
Also on Friday, July 29, Whole Washington is proud to join the Red Berets of Washington in co-hosting a screening of the documentary Healing Us, at Washington Hall, 153 14th Avenue in Seattle. The film highlights our broken healthcare system, and those who are fighting to build something better. Tickets start at $14.71. Doors open at 6:30, and the screening (followed by a panel with activists from the film) starts at 7:00 PM.
Wow, there’s certainly a lot happening to close out July. Thanks to everyone putting their time & heart into making this campaign a success.
If you’re unable to volunteer, would you consider making a financial contribution? We’re so grateful for the help!
