National Nurses United and National Nurses Organizing Committee along with Project South and several grassroots Georgia organizations and unions will host a ‘mini’ Peoples Movement Assembly for Expanded and Improved Medicare 4 All!
“sin·gle pay·er health·care”
Single Payer or Improved Medicare 4 All! is a single publicly financed and administered government health insurance system paid for by combining all current public health funding streams and progressive taxes. A single payer system ends the role of for profit health insurances that leave millions uninsured and underinsured.
Improved Medicare 4 All! would enable a single high standard of care not based on ability to pay – and that standard would be safe, effective and therapeutic for all residents regardless of income, occupation or health status.
Join healthcare professionals, families, union members, students, disability and human rights activists to build alliances between our communities affected by the current healthcare system.
WHERE: Project South, 9 Gammon Avenue, Atlanta 30315
WHEN: Saturday, September 16th
TIME: 12:30 – 3:30 (light lunch will be served)
This Peoples Movement Assembly will look at some of the history and present day reality of our healthcare system and the strategies to build single payer healthcare financing that can guarantee safe, secure healthcare for all. Everybody In and Nobody Out!
