Quick Recap From The Huge Health Care Summit.
By Mike Fox for Mike H., Donna, Deb, Janis, Kimberly, Bryan, Dan, Judy, and Dr. Bill—your PDA National Team
A huge coalition including PDA, National Nurses United, Our Revolution, Healthcare-Now, Social Security Works, NOW and others brought together activists and policy analysts with the goal of bringing health care as a human right to all Floridians and folks across the country.
Featured speakers included Nina Tuner of Our Rev., Toni Van Pelt of NOW, Michael Lighty of National Nurses United, Bernie Sanders economist Gerald Friedman, and more.
PDA was well-represented as I was joined by PDA Broward County chair Mitchell Stollberg, PDA Palm Beach Chair Cameron Stempel, and PDA mega vols Steve Thursby, Shel Keitel, Rick Neuhoff, and more as we helped keep the trains running on time.
Among the highlights: Rep. Lois Frankel came on board with HR676: Expanded and improved Medicare For All!
And not only was it educational and a tremendous organizing opportunity, we even found some time to work the streets outside of the hotel, just blocks from Trump’s Mar-A-Largo in West Palm Beach.
Please support more efforts like this — as well as our educate congress campaign, and our efforts to support healthcare supporting congressional candidates. Help us continue our fight to provide healthcare for all. Everybody in. Nobody out.
Onward to healthcare as a human right!
