Event Type: Panel Discussion
As the basic flaws of the Affordable Care Act become increasingly obvious, more people are demanding a truly universal healthcare program based on single-payer financing. With its Healthcare as a Human Right campaign, Progressive Democrats of America has joined the movement now active in many parts of the US. Bills have been introduced in Congress and several states are moving toward implementing their own single-payer system.

Single-payer will not happen by itself. At our March 27 Forum, leading single-payer activists will describe how their organizations are working to bring about real healthcare reform in the US and how we can support their efforts.

Sponsored by Progressive Democrats of America-San Francisco (sanfranpda [at] aol.com) and Unitarian Universalists for Peace-San Francisco
