July 30, 2014 will mark the 49th anniversary of Medicare, our only publicly financed, universal health plan, which lifted a generation of seniors out of poverty. Each year Healthcare-NOW! coordinates Medicare’s birthday as a national day of action for single payer healthcare.
Please email Ben to let us know if you would like to plan or are planning an action this year, so we can email you educational materials, help publicize your event to activists in the area, and put you in touch with others who are planning actions elsewhere in the country.
In years past Healthcare-NOW! has coordinated up to 50 actions on or around July 30th. We want this whole week to be filled with events across the country that will help the movement increase its visibility and outreach. This will be a great organizing opportunity for local and national organizations, and a way for even small actions to become part of a larger movement for the week!
