Campaign for a Healthy California
Campaign for a Healthy California is a campaign of community and labor organizations (representing over 4 million Californians) committed to building a grassroots movement to replace private health insurance with guaranteed healthcare for all Californians. We are building a movement of nurses, teachers, patients, doctors, union members, business leaders, faith and immigrant rights community, healthcare advocates and providers to ensure that healthcare is a human right in California. An “Improved Medicare for All” system will help solve California’s fiscal problems by controlling rising healthcare costs. Additionally, it would solve our healthcare crisis by providing comprehensive health benefits and ensuring choice of healthcare providers.
AllCare Alliance is a coalition of organizations working to guarantee that everyone has access to high-quality, affordable, comprehensive health care.
An estimated 3 million Californians lack health insurance even after full implementation of the Affordable Care Act, and many more will struggle to pay for care.
It’s time to build on the Affordable Care Act to establish a publicly-financed California program modeled on “Medicare for All”, that serves us all for life.
Labor United for Universal Healthcare
Labor United for Universal Healthcare is a coalition of nearly forty California unions, worker centers, and allied groups committed to building a healthcare system that is sustainable, secure, and just. The spiraling costs of health insurance is an unconscionable burden on Americans, both union and non-union. As organizers, we know that we’re always stronger together.
We are entertainment industry workers and city and county employees protecting our healthcare benefits. We are nurses and caregivers in solidarity with our patients. We are hotel workers and grocery clerks supporting our families. We are retirees who want a better life for our children and grandchildren. We are teachers, bus drivers, and professors who want better healthcare for our students. We are immigrant workers with little or no access to healthcare. We are workers, labor activists, union staffers, and community organizers who care deeply about our broken healthcare system. We are trade unionists fighting for healthcare justice for our sisters and brothers – those on and off the job.
