Dear Friends,

At Healthcare NOW, our mission to empower ordinary folks fighting back against the system means that we do not take money from corporations or wealthy donors who want to water down the message. We aren’t beholden to anyone other than the people we represent.

Unfortunately, as is the case for most grassroots organizations, the pandemic has taken a toll on Healthcare NOW’s fundraising, with our individual donations falling by almost 50% since COVID started. We get it – the economy is in shambles and the people who are most impacted by the need for change in our healthcare system are struggling. But that just means the need for our work is even more urgent than ever before. We need to be growing, not shrinking - and making sure that Medicare for All is at the forefront of the national political conversation this election season.

That’s why we are holding an Emergency Fundraising Drive to raise the $45,000 we need to keep our organization sustainable, so we can keep building power until we win Medicare for All.

Please, if you are able, donate today to help us sustain our work through election season and beyond!

Thank you so much for your support!

The Healthcare Census is a natonal effort to have real conversations with our friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers about the healthcare crisis in this country! We know that talking - and most important, really listening - to people is the only way to better understand the issues they are facing and invite them to join us in fighting for Medicare for All.

The Census interview is a 15-20 minute survey about issues people might face in getting or paying for medical treatment, and it's a great way to start a conversation about healthcare. The answers can remain anonymous, or respondents can give their contact info. The interview can be conducted over the phone, via zoom, or in-person (with COVID safety precautions in place) - whatever works best for you.

We need volunteers to conduct interviews with others, be interviewed themselves, coordinate a volunteer team, and/or help provide tech support to the campaign. Healthcare-NOW will provide all the tools and training you need and host monthly support calls where folks can report back on their progress, brainstorm solutions for common obstacles, and build community with other folks who are passionate about healthcare justice!

Sign up here, and find our hub for all Census resources!

In 2018, Healthcare-NOW and coalition partners launched a campaign to get Rep. Joe Kennedy, then-Rep for Massachusetts' 4th district, on the Medicare for All Act. Rep. Kennedy was of national importance to the movement because of his position on Energy and Commerce, the first committee that H.R. 1384 will have to pass in order to get to the floor for a vote.

Read our step-by-step breakdown of the campaign that got Kennedy on!
