About

We are the Center for National Single Payer health care. We organize through a national strategy of webinars, direct action, and the people’s health care curriculum to mobilize and vote for national single payer as the solution to our health care crisis.

Mission Statement

To achieve national, single payer, universal, comprehensive, affordable, accountable, accessible, gender-affirming, high-quality, dignified, transparent, and equitable, non-discriminatory health care for all individuals residing in the US regardless of sex, age, creed, race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, citizenship, disability, geographic location, income, or employment status.

Our Principles

  • Health care is a human right
  • We demand the elimination of profit-making from the health care system
  • We reject a health care system based on racism
  • The struggle to health care justice champions all social justice movements.
  • State single payer bills and other incremental approaches such as the public option, lowering the age of Medicare, patching up existing Medicare or expanding Medicaid are not paths to national single payer
  • National single payer is non-partisan
