Our friends at the California Nurses Association (CNA) are hosting a local car caravan this Saturday, Feb. 6, to urge state legislators to pass California Guaranteed Health Care for All (CalCare).
CalCare, similar to Medicare for All, would guarantee health care as a human right in the state of California by providing comprehensive, high-quality health care for all. The California Nurses Association has been leading the fight for guaranteed health care for decades and is actively working to introduce a new single-payer bill in the state legislature.
“The nation has long looked to California for inspiration and guidance in the national fight for universal health care,” says CNA president Zenei Triunfo-Cortez. “We’ve come closer than any other state in history to passing guaranteed health care for all our residents. The nurses will always do what it takes to protect our patients, and we know CalCare will save lives.”
The event will be part of the nurses’ kickoff day of action with car caravans in 23 cities across California. Participants will practice physical distancing, wear masks, and adhere to other COVID-19 safety guidelines.
The Sacramento Area car caravan is set for:
Saturday, February 6th at 1:00 p.m.
and will start at:
West Wind Sacrament 6 Drive-In
9616 Oates Drive
Sacramento, CA 95827
The caravan will begin with a short program, followed by a drive down an easy-to-follow route with signs on participants’ vehicles demonstrating clear support for guaranteed health care for all Californians. Participants will demonstrate from within their vehicles.
The organizers are asking participants to decorate their cars in advance – although some window signs will also be provided if needed.
