Healthcare 101 for Economic and Social Justice Activists

  • MN Neighborhoods Organizing for Change 1101 West Broadway Avenue Minneapolis, MN, 55411 United States

How does the current healthcare debate intersect with movements for economic, racial and social justice? (Short answer: the system screws almost everyone, poor people and people of color the most, and it's about to get worse.) As an organizer or activist, do you feel like you need more information about how the system works so you can organize your members or networks around attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, cut Medicaid and privatize Medicare? Come for an informal discussion about how the current system works, what the threats are in MN and DC, and how we can organize around a real solution.
