Last week, hundreds of people across the country—from Alabama to Pennsylvania, Texas to Wisconsin—took action with the Nonviolent Medicaid Army to demand health care as a human right amidst a pandemic that has killed over 670,000 people.
Today the Vermont Workers’ Center, along with 16 labor and community organizations, sent an open letter to legislators serving on the Task Force on Affordable, Accessible Health Care calling on them to champion human rights solutions to the health care crisis.
On April 15th, VWC leaders Jessica Morrison, Grace Beninson, and Ellen Schwartz offered powerful testimony to the Senate Health and Welfare Committee as it discussed healthcare affordability and the future of the All-Payer model and OneCare contract.
On April 7th, World Health Day, over fifty people rallied outside the Vermont statehouse calling on Governor Scott to put life over profit by treating healthcare as a human right.
Join us on World Health Day to demand Governor Scott puts an end to privatization and profiteering in the healthcare system.
Wednesday, April 7th at 4pm
