This November 14th, we will gather hundreds of single-payer supporters from across Massachusetts at the State House for a day of education, demonstration, and legislative advocacy.
The day will include informative sessions on the concept of single-payer healthcare, as well as specifics on current legislation. Attendees will also have a chance to meet with their elected officials one-on-one or in small groups to express why they are concerned about this issue.
In joining allies from across the state for this unified action, we aim to build the capacity to run successful single-payer educational and legislative campaigns throughout Massachusetts.
Single Payer Rally / Lobby Day

Now is the time to consolidate energy, attention, and action to advance rights-based policies for health in America. The success of the movement to stop the GOP from repealing the ACA was a major victory for grassroots activists. It showed the power of a variety of key constituencies: disability rights activists, the progressive left, healthcare workers, the faith community, among others.
Legislative proposals for improved and expanded Medicare for All have greater support than ever before in the US House of Representatives and in the MA State Legislature, while Bernie Sanders is gearing up to launch a campaign for a Senate single payer bill.
