The 2021 Medicare for All Strategy Conference, co-sponsored by the Labor Campaign for Single Payer, will be held online on January 23 and 24, 2021. All UE local leaders are urged to consider attending. The early-bird registration price of $35 is only available until December 18, so we urge you to register as soon as possible.
UE has long supported a Medicare for All, single-payer plan to provide healthcare to all. The need to fix our broken healthcare system has become even more critical as the pandemic has further laid bare the weakness of the employer-based system. This conference will be an important place to meet with other labor and healthcare activists to strategize how to win this fight under a new administration and a new Congress.
The organizers are working to make this online event as participatory and interactive as possible. Workshops will consist of short presentations, with most of the hour dedicated to breakout sessions for discussion. Some workshops will be geared to those who are fairly new to the issue while others will target activists who have already been in the trenches for quite a while. There will also be opportunities to meet other participants during caucuses, workshop breakouts, and Happy Hours hosted on the social networking platform Gather.
We hope to see you there!
