We are excited to announce that registration is open for the first HOPE Single Payer Action Camp. It will take place April 7 to 10 in Washington, DC. We’ll have two days of workshops and training followed by two days of creative actions to put our new skills to work. Then you can take the new skills back home and continue building the movement to win National Improved Medicare for All. There will be something for everyone to do.

In the News
You probably heard that Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett and Jamie Dimon are teaming up to solve the healthcare crisis, at least for their employees. Of course, we already have the solution: NIMA. The problem is the influence of the medical-industrial complex over Congress. Josh Finkelstein names the names of Congress members who are on the take.
Thousands marched in the UK this weekend to save their National Health System. Rita Valenti writes abouthealth care in terms of its Southern history and how the fight for NIMA is part of our struggle for broader transformational changes. And, in recognition of the need for broader change, Health Over Profit for Everyone endorsed the Disability Integration Actthis past week. Your organization can too.
