Everybody INstitute

On Saturday, May 17 from 9AM to 5PM in Houston, Health Care for All Texas and Healthcare-NOW! will be hosting the first ‘Everybody INstitute’ in the country. An Everybody INstitute is a one-day training focused on developing skills and strategies for single-payer organizing, messaging, outreach, public education, media, and legislative advocacy.

You can register today to be part of this event, which will re-energize our efforts to take the profit out of health care and guarantee access for all!

There is a suggested registration fee of $25, which will pay for lunch, translation services, and a packet of organizing materials for you to take home. However, no one will be turned away – if the fee would be a financial burden, simply request a scholarship online when you register. If you can make an additional contribution to sponsor a scholarship for someone else, please give generously when you register!
