Purpose

Vermont's new Universal Health Care System presentation.

Last June, Vermont signed into law a plan to create a statewide, universal health care system. Now the spirit of Vermont is coming to Oregon! Come hear from Kate Kanelstein and Sarah Weintraub, two organizers with the Vermont Workers Center, whose three-year campaign convinced the Vermont legislature to declare health care is a human right. After their presentation, break-out groups will give local folks the chance to take part in the campaign for universal health care in Oregon.
