What do we mean by universal health care?

  • Coverage designed and administered by the state
  • Care delivered by private and public providers, clinics and hospitals
  • Financed through a unified single-payer system
  • From cradle to grave, all Washingtonians covered by state, federal, or tribal programs

How do we get there? Through legislative advocacy.

We are effective:

We build relationships with legislators and voters across the state and aisle.

Be part of the organization that is moving our state toward a healthier and more equitable future with universal health care.
