Rainey Sykes and Ursula Rolfe on lobbying day 2012

Join us to lobby in support of health care reform, universal affordable coverage, and single payer financing, and  Medicare for All with other members of the Campaign for a Healthy California. Our Health Care Team and other California Leaguers will support the California Healthcare Professional Student Alliance [CaHPSA] at their annual lobby day in Sacramento, Monday, Feb 11. Like the California LWV, the students are part of the Campaign for a Healthy California, the state single payer coalition.

Even though there is not yet a bill before the legislature, we need to keep our elected representatives aware of our support for health care reform.  We expect some good speakers and hundreds of students in their white coats.

Sign up to ride the bus with us.  Berkeley: Ashby Bart at 9:15 am. This bus will pick up in Richmond after the Berkeley stop. Reserve a seat through Cara at 510-663-4086.

LobbyDaySacramento2013 has more details. The day is always lively and fun.  The bus is free, but donations are welcome. Call me or email me if you have questions.

In League,
