Massachusetts Single-Payer Health Care Hearing March 22

03.18.2016

A public hearing on Tuesday, March 22 will feature three bills supporting single-payer health care for Massachusetts residents. MNA nurses plan to attend the hearing and testify in support of the legislation.

The Massachusetts Campaign for Single Payer Health Care is calling for supporters to take action around the hearing, scheduled for 11 a.m. in the Gardner Auditorium at the State House in Boston. The Joint Committee on Health Care Financing is hosting the hearing.

Health care is a human right! Share your voice. You can demonstrate that support in many ways:

  • Offer to testify at the hearings - contact the Mass-Care office if you would like to offer oral testimony
  • Present written testimony with personal stories and why we need single payer health care
  • Contact you state representative or senator to inform them that you stand for health justice and single payer health care.
  • Attend the hearings and encourage your co-workers, students and your friends and family members to attend so we demonstrate the support for health justice.
