The Vermont Workers’ Center (VWC) has achieved a historic victory to pass the country’s first universal healthcare law. In this workshop we will breakdown how they won this fight, share key tools and strategies, and discuss the potential for building nationally on this issue.

Catalyst Project is honored to host VWC leaders James Haslam, Amy Lester and Anisa Potvin who will discuss lessons from the Healthcare is a Human Right Campaign and how they are working to build a broad grassroots movement for human rights and real democracy.

This workshop will include:
• Human rights framing for grassroots organizing and a human rights policy analysis.
• Popular education tools for healthcare organizing
• Grassroots media tools
• Lessons learned, including how racism was used as a divide and control tactic by opponents of the healthcare bill and how the VWC used an anti-racist lens to win a victory for ALL people living in Vermont
