Win-Win Campaign Activist Training Call – Sat., Jan 23rd at 1pm EST

Please join single-payer activists to participate in a training conference call on Healthcare-NOW’s innovative campaign that is bringing in resolutions for single-payer national healthcare across the nation.

Learn how to calculate how much your state, city, county, or school district could save under HR 676, Improved Medicare for All. For example, one school district in upstate New York would save $18.7 million a year in under HR 676. The State of NJ would save $2.5 billion a year!

In this economic crisis, the cost savings Medicare for All could bring to our ailing state and local governments are desperately needed. The reform pending in Congress brings no relief to state and local governments, and may make things worse. Single-payer is the only viable solution to our nation’s health care crisis, and the Win-Win campaign is a way to open doors, and get the attention of new audiences and potential advocates.

Join us on January 23rd at 1pm EST to learn more. Healthcare-NOW’s Win-Win Coordinator, Tom Knoche, will conduct the interactive training.

Please RSVP by January 20th to with the subject line: Win-Win.

We will send you materials to review in advance of the call.
