Another Business for a Healthy California 

We need your help to expand the coalition supporting SB 562.

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, more than 3.6 million firms in California employ 20 people or less. We believe there are many supporters of SB 562 within this sector that need to be identified, and many more that need to be educated on why “Medicare for All” serves their interests as businesspeople and citizens. They embody an enormous voting block and resource base.

In addition, they represent a critical, credible segment of the population that needs to speak out to counteract and neutralize what will be a fierce, negative campaign waged by vested interests in the health care industry and their mouthpieces at Chambers of Commerce around the state. Let’s make sure that the real voice of business is heard loud and clear about why SB 562 is a job creator, and how it makes small business more competitive!

The Business Alliance for a Healthy California (BA4HCal) seeks your help to mobilize the small business community in our Another Business for a Healthy California campaign. We have developed an information packet specifically oriented to small business owners for your use in visits to neighborhood enterprises.

The packet includes:

  1. Letter of introduction describing the Business Alliance for a Healthy California

  2. Flyer - Business Reasons Why to Support SB 562

  3. Flyer with a graph illustrating payroll savings projected under SB562

  4. Small poster of support shopkeepers can put in their window
