How to Become a Healthcare-NOW! Affiliate

Healthcare-NOW! is always looking for volunteers and organizers who are committed to passing single-payer legislation in the US. We believe that if grassroots activists have access to tools, resources, and training they will become more effective in organizing for single-payer healthcare.

If you’re already organized, officially affiliating with Healthcare-NOW! guarantees you the rights listed below.

If you’re not part of a group, we can help! As a national organization, we are connected to over 700 activists in all fifty states and over 50,000 supporters. We work with 43 local single-payer organizations and 23 national organizations. Healthcare-NOW!’s affiliation with the Leadership Conference for Guaranteed Health Care connects us to 20 million people nationwide.

Healthcare-NOW! asks that your organization agree to our mission and vision and pay an organizational membership fee every year. Affiliation details are listed below.

Please contact Healthcare-NOW! staff at 800-453-1305 or info@healthcare-now.org with questions or to let us know that you’d like to affiliate.
