Let’s move SB562! The movement for Medicare for All in California continues. Join UUJM members as part of the larger coalition in Sacramento on October 23rd and 24th to rally in support for SB 562 at the State Capitol during the Select Committee Hearing on Healthcare.
Instead of moving SB 562 forward, Speaker Anthony Rendon has blocked the democratic process by stalling the bill, and created a “Select Committee on Health Care Delivery Systems and Universal Coverage,” with absolutely no legislative authority. The first select committee hearings will be held on these 2 days in Sacramento with apparently little time scheduled for public comment.
We will hold rallies on the North Steps of the State Capitol building from 11am – 12pm on both days to urge these legislators to move SB 562 forward without delay. Join us and bring a friend or two!
NOTE: If you are unable to attend events on the 23rd and 24th, but you want to be involved in UUJM’s Healthcare Action Team, please let us know by emailing us!
