About

National Single Payer is a national, grassroots organization that organizes locally but focuses on the struggle for national single payer health care. We are united by the common principles that health care is a human right, must be free from corporate profit, and must be achieved through national legislation.

We are a 501(c)(4) under the fiscal sponsorship of Americans for Democratic Action. Your donations keep our work alive!
