In honor of Black History Month, a People’s Rally for Health Care is being held at 12th Street & Lake Merritt Blvd near Lake Merritt Amphitheater in Oakland to demand the passage of Health Care for All.

When AB1400, (CalCare) California’s ‘Guaranteed Health Care For All’ bill was pulled from the Assembly floor vote many of us were very disappointed. Our opposition in the insurance and for-profit healthcare lobby fought hard with misleading ads and their endless stream of corporate cash to legislators to protect their billions in profit.

We are rallying to demand that our lawmakers prioritize the lives and health of our most underserved communities, people of color, women, and people who are poor, disabled, LGBTQ+, immigrants or undocumented.

This is how we keep building our demands for equitable healthcare, by showing up!

Masks and Social Distancing Required.

We have been advocating for such an expanded and improved Medicare for All health care system since our inception, 14 years ago, through public education and outreach in the South San Francisco Bay Area.

We believe that healthcare is a human right, and that it should be provided ao ALL, regardless of any life circumstances - "Everybody In, Nobody Out!".

Our focus also includes health justice, as we face increasing inequities that BIPOC communities experience in receiving adequate and quality health care.
