Why Take Action for a Healthy California?
Healthy California is a campaign comprised of organizations representing over 6 million Californians committed to guaranteeing healthcare for the residents of our state. Our goal is to win improved Medicare for All in California.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) made history by expanding health insurance to millions of Californians for the first time. However, it left insurance companies in charge of our healthcare system. Also, even with the ACA, 3,000,000 California residents are still uninsured.
With the federal government again doing healthcare reform, moving more responsibility for healthcare to the states, it’s imperative that California establish a better, truly universal system, which finally gets costs under control. The Golden State can set the standard for the country by implementing a just and equitable healthcare system — Healthy California!
Become part of our action team! Connect with local and state actions, outreach to legislators, join town halls and educate the community about the Healthy California Act (SB 562). Help build a movement to make healthcare a right in the Golden State!
