Rita Valenti

Rita's Medicare for All Fundraiser
I am a Registered Nurse for over 30 years, and am currently serving on the board of Healthcare-NOW. With uninsurance and poverty rising, the times are particularly urgent. I have witnessed too many patients suffer with preventable illnesses, disabling complications and even premature deaths because the healthcare system cruelly rations care to those most in need. Health institutions function in the distorted market place of capitalism whose goal for revenues or profits trumps patient care and frustrate compassionate professionals’ labors to heal & comfort the patient community.

The financing and distribution of health services has resulted in an austerity of care for millions in the face of an abundance of knowledge and resources. The problem is not scarcity; it’s distribution. The time for Medicare for All, national health insurance has come! Donate to Healthcare-NOW! Help us make healthcare for all a reality!

Please give what you can to Healthcare-NOW

Healthcare-NOW organizes thousands of activists in all 50 states, and supports both state and national single payer efforts. To win, we must build a powerful social movement through education and action, so our work focuses on:
  • raising up the voices of patients who feel isolated in their struggles with the healthcare system
  • educating activists to gain the knowledge and skills they need to become leaders
  • mobilizing our movement through collective action
