Become a City or County Resolution Advocate!!!
Enacting single-payer universal health care for the state was declared a primary mission by legislators January 26 when they publicly launched a Legislative Caucus for the Minnesota Health Plan (MHP) at a news conference inside the capitol. Outside, a large crowd of HCAMN supporters celebrated the event in sub-zero weather.
The legislators are committed to grow the Caucus to get majority votes for the Senate and House MHP bills, beginning with the 23 Senators (34%) and 35 Representatives (26%) who are already signed on as co-authors. They now need to see support from local communities and ask for HCAMN’s help.
Because cities, counties, and residents throughout the state can no longer afford commercial health insurance, HCAMN members have answered the call by becoming advocates and getting the City Councils of St. Paul, Duluth, and Osseo to pass the resolution for the MN Health Plan and Medicare for All Act. (Minneapolis passed a Medicare for All resolution in 2019.)
The Caucus legislators and HCAMN advocates invite you to join them in becoming advocates in your communities. Learn how by first emailing Don Pylkkanen, firstname.lastname@example.org, who will connect you with resources and others in the fight!
