We’re officially three weeks away from the big event.
Our Presentation to the
Universal Health Care Commission
August 10th, 2 – 4 PM
🔥3 Weeks Away🔥
So What’s Our Focus this Week?
Emailing the Universal Healthcare Commission!
This week’s action is very easy! Email the Universal Health Care Commission and tell them how you feel about Universal Healthcare.
You could describe your personal healthcare story, or you may want to write about a specific policy point, or you may simply want to demand urgency to help us! It can be short or long–whatever feels right to you. Just make sure to send the email in time.
Email to: [email protected]
Deadline: July 26th.
(This will ensure it gets in the public record for the August meeting)

Hey! We Could Really Use More Help
Do you have talents and/or time to give to this Commission event? To make the most of the opportunity, we could use more hands and minds. Here’s what we’re looking for:
- Reference Material Help – we need graphics, writing, and editing skills to create supplemental documents
- Calling Volunteers – let’s call our beloved comrades to make sure they’re aware of and involved in the big event
- Outreach to Journalists – assemble, distribute, and track press packets to get some real coverage on the Commission’s work
Email [email protected] if you can lend a hand.
If you don’t have the time…
Could you help us out with postage costs? Just $5 or $10 will support the postcard effort significantly! We’d love to keep this project moving along.

We’ll always keep pushing for the ultimate goal, Medicare for All at the federal level. Don’t miss out on the action, starting at 6 PM tonight.
Watch the Monthly Calendar for upcoming meetings from any of our strategy teams.
