Support the single-payer bill in the California state legislature! SB 562--co-authored by our own state senator, Mike McGuire--is moving forward. The Healthy California Act calls on the state to create a publicly financed system that will replace private medical insurance and cover all residents in the state. Now is the time! Pooled risk, one comprehensive plan, cost-efficient administration, negotiated prices...everybody in, nobody out!

You can help now... Become a dues-paying member of HCA - CA ( Host a neighborhood conversation in your home, screen a film or invite a speaker to your group, table at a nearby market, write a letter to the editor. Get in touch and let's talk about how we are going to make history together!

Regular Meetings.  Bi-monthly chapter meetings are open to all. They are a great opportunity to meet other single payer advocates, get updates on the movement, improve your advocacy skills, and help plan public outreach activities.

When: Second Tuesday of every other month starting in February. Time: 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Dates in 2017: February 14, April 11, June 13, August 8, October 9. Holiday gathering in December, details to be announced.

Where: Corte Madera Town Center community room. Take the Tamalpais/Paradise exit off U.S. 101, head west on Tamalpais Drive, turn right into the shopping center, and right at the stop sign. Park on the right. (P.F. Chang is ahead on the left.) Enter the mall courtyard between ivy-covered pillars. The community room is on the second floor of the office building (#770) between the A.T.T. store and Barnes & Noble.

Contact us any time with questions and suggestions. If you are in another county, we can arrange to meet half way and see how to personalize your advocacy where you live.
