Dear Health Advocates:

You are invited to attend our general meeting where we will discuss and adopt our policy priorities for 2021. See our proposal here.

Help us get ready to make real gains in health care access in affordability in 2021. The pandemic, the economic catastrophe it is causing, and the uprising against racial injustice have all brought unprecedented urgency to the need for universal health care. HCHR is gearing up to engage our lawmakers and elected leaders in WA and WA DC. Our proposed policy priorities are intended to advance both short-term progress and movement towards comprehensive health care solutions at the state and federal levels. 

Zoom Registration 
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

WHO CAN VOTE? 
Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting and speak. Only HCHR Sponsor member organizations can vote, and a roll-call vote will be taken. Here is our list of members.

If your organization is not a Sponsor, it can still become one in time to vote at this meeting. See the HCHR Organizational Guidelines for details and apply to become a Member Organization

Final Universal Health Care Work Group Meeting

0

Sign up in Support of Model A 

The more people that sign up, the more we show our strength. The public comments are usually at the top of the agenda and speakers are usually allowed 1.5 minutes. We are asking people 1) Speak in favor of Model A: Universal healthcare covering all residents with the benefits package and delivery system rules set by the state and the state contracting directly with providers; and  2) Ask each Work Group members to state the Model they prefer for the record to fulfill the mandate of the legislature to make recommendations.

Register for the meeting and to provide public comments by Monday, Dec. 7 at 5 pm.  At this point, it is likely there are more speakers than time allows. Written comments can be submitted after the meeting. Sign up anyway — we want standing room only on Zoom!

A Must-Have for Federal Legislation

Many organizations are helping register new voters and get out the vote for the January 5 run-off election for the two US Senate seats that will determine who controls the Senate in 2021.

While HCHR does not endorse candidates for office, we encourage people to volunteer to enable the Biden Administration to pass legislation we so urgently need to combat COVID, recover the economy, and address racial injustice. 

The WA State Labor Council has organized phone calls to union members in Georgia every Tuesday, 11 AM – 1 PM. WSLC Political Director Cherika Carter sent this message: “These phonebanks are specifically for union members and retirees and they can sign up here. If you have other coalition members who aren’t union feel free to send them to volunteer with The New Georgia Project. A few former union sisters I know are leading those efforts, and they’ll be in good hands.”

The New Georgia Project will also set up phone or text banks for any organization wanting to help. Daily phone banks available with MoveOn.

NEW: Texting with Working Families Party:  Register to text for Reverend Raphael Warnock click here. Phone banks for Warnock every Tues, Weds, and Thurs here.

If letter-writing to voters suits you best, you can volunteer with Vote Forward and Daily Kos here.
