Single-Payer Strategy Conference, June 22 – June 24, 2018

Join Us in Minneapolis, MN!

You are invited to join hundreds of activists for a weekend of inspiration and strategy to win single-payer national healthcare! Attempts by Trump and the Republican Congress to undermine existing healthcare programs have awoken a sleeping giant, and the American people are deciding that they don’t want to fight just for the right to buy a lousy health insurance plan. Support for Medicare for All has reached unprecedented levels, and this year we plan to construct a national campaign to win Medicare for All that can move us from resistance to victory. Join us!

Reception & Opening Plenary: Friday, June 22, 7:00PM-9:00PM
Conference: Saturday, June 23, 9:00AM-5:30PM; and Sunday, June 24, 9:00AM-12:00PM noon

Radisson Blu Minneapolis Downtown: 35 South Seventh Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402
