Victory in Vermont will set the stage for winning universal healthcare across the country!
The Vermont Workers’ Center has had a two year grassroots campaign of holding hearings, gathering health care stories, meeting with legislators and community members and passing a law which commits the state of Vermont to implement a new healthcare system based on the human rights principles of universality, equity, accountability, transparency and participation. This topic affects us all.
Do you know people who are uninsured?
Do you worry about getting a job with health benefits?
Do you know people with large medical bills?
“Join us to learn about their campaign and the movement for the human right to health care.”
