"Single Payer"

Immediately after the 2016 presidential election, the California Nurses Association (CNA) jump-started a campaign to win single-payer healthcare in California. This February, East Bay Democratic Socialists of America decided to join the nurses and make the Healthy California campaign our organization’s central fight.
