CA Senate Bill 562 – Healthy CA Act – Call Now
California Senate Bill 562, known as the Healthy Californian Act is being primed for a vote in the Legislature. Our Revolution, one of the dynamic national grassroots activism groups, will be rallying this Friday in Sacramento in support of this bill. Former Ohio legislator Nina Turner will be leading the protest. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to show your belief in and support for Medicare for all in California, regardless of ability to pay. Once again, California is leading the way in this country’s march forward toward greater equality in our society. Thank you to all in Our Revolution! Read more here.
There are less than ten days left for the California State Senate to bring SB 562 to the floor for a vote. Also known as the Healthy California Act, this Medicare for All bill would guarantee health care to all Californians, regardless of their income.
We are rallying on the steps of the Capitol building in Sacramento this Friday, the first day of the California Democratic Convention, to tell the State Senate to vote “Yes!” on SB 562. Joining with Healthy California and the California Nurses Association, we’re making it crystal clear that we expect Democrats to support Medicare for All. It’s a moral imperative for which we are all responsible. Join us at the Rally to Win SB 562.

Folks without health insurance want to see their elected officials be proactive, not reactive. They cannot afford for us to wait around for the GOP to strip away health care first, and then react only once the problem has gotten worse. Building power is about making the change, not reacting to it. That’s how we win.
We need to pass Medicare for All in California, and we have a good chance of accomplishing it before next Friday. But insurance lobbyists and corporate Democrats are trying to defeat this bill — we can’t allow that to happen.
We have to rely on one another to make real change possible. People are counting on us to make the difference here — let’s win SB 562 for all of us.
