"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.

Within a month, our chapter held a preliminary canvassing event to train a dozen canvassing captains. Then we multiplied our capacity and held a second event three weeks later with more than 160 volunteers. These volunteers — mostly first-time canvassers — spread throughout the East Bay to educate the community about the single-payer system and mobilize supporters in favor of SB 562.

DSA canvassers included Jeremy Gong, Marianela D'Aprile, Mary Virginia Watson, Frances Reade, Ari Marcantonio, Simon Brown, Sam Hughes, Mia Lehrer and Jamie Gardner.[1]
