Upcoming Events:

Single Payer Day on the Hill with MNA

Visit the Minnesota State Capitol to talk with legislators about putting Minnesota on a path to single payer healthcare!

Our close partners Minnesota Nurses Association are hosting a day on the hill to advocate for healthcare for every Minnesotan! We’ll meet at the MNA office in St. Paul to get a briefing from staff and a quick training on telling our story to legislators. Then we’ll carpool over to the Capitol and speak with elected officials about the importance of the Minnesota Health Plan (HF 1200/SF 1125). We’ll ask for legislators’ support and share our stories about our broken healthcare system and offer our solution as a fix.

MNA Office is just off of the 74 and 54 bus lines.

Their address is 345 Randolph Ave., Suite 200, Saint Paul, Minnesota 55102

RSVPS REQUIRED BY APRIL 22.

To register, contact Aaron Lichtov Aaron.Lichtov@mnnurses.org with your name, home address, email and phone number.
