Healthcare justice activists have worked for many years toward a national health insurance (single payer) solution to the U.S.’s corporate, for-profit health care mess. We continue in this struggle, which we will report on in the first of two sessions to discuss state and local organizing. Part II will be a discussion of our work in Healthcare for the 99%. In both sessions there will be a focus on discussion and strategizing. Both sessions will feature organizers from Healthcare for the 99%

Limited supply of complimentary tickets available for medical students and residents. These tickets will allow access to these two and all other panels over the weekend-long Left Forum. Contact sam@pnhpnymetro.org
