It's almost the new year and that means it's time for Blitz Mobilization Meetings! 2018's Blitz Meetings were a great success - we reached new people, gained new supporters, and wrote hundreds of note cards to our legislators on the necessity of healthcare reform in Washington state - and in return we got hearings in the House and Senate, media coverage, and more support in the legislature than ever.
Let's keep that momentum going in 2019! Join us to discuss several pending bills in the upcoming 2019 legislative session, meet fellow supporters in your legislative district, and learn how to take action and help achieve single payer healthcare for all Washingtonians! See below for meeting times and locations.
In the meantime, call or email your legislators now in-district asking them to sign on as co-sponsors to two very important bills, using the script below. Click here to find your legislators.
"As a supporter of Universal Health Care, we hope you will co-sponsor two bills to bring Universal Health Care to all Washington residents.
The first bill is a “bridge bill” that takes immediate steps toward providing affordable coverage for all and laying the foundation for a true state-based single payer system. It is currently being written by Rep. Macri and Sen. Frockt. The second bill is the Washington Health Security Trust, prime sponsored by Rep. Appleton. Neither has a number yet, but we can get you that information before Jan. 14th.
We are eager to meet with you in-district if you have any questions. Thank you."
