Parallel National Efforts for Universal Health Care

U2K is excited that not only have many organizations signed on to work with our campaign (see our growing list of Endorsers), but there are some other great campaigns working along side us as well. This page will feature information about this great work as it comes available to us.

Catholic Health Association's CAMPAIGN 2000

A campaign of The Catholic Health Association of the United States (CHA) and the American College of Physicians-American Society of Internal Medicine (ACP-ASIM) are working to jump-start a national dialogue to make accessible and affordable healthcare a national priority. The campaign is asking for signers for a petition to urging a national dialogue on healthcare reform.

"Just Health Care" campaign of the Labor Party

The Just Health Care campaign seeks to achieve "cradle to grave security and
an end to profit mongering in health care," according to Kit Costello,  past
Co-Chair of the Labor Party.  The model supported is the single payer system
utilized in Canada.

Labor Party chapters around the country are building the "Just Health Care"
campaign by doing workplace organizing, establishing one-to-one contacts,
organizing electoral campaigns and initiatives and doing media outreach.
The campaign promotes a petition to establish a "Committee of One Million"
to call for a national solution built around the principles of the Labor
Party¹s health care program.

National Council of Churches General Assembly Commits to Universal Health Care Campaign

The Council has issued a Resolution renewing its long standing commitment to Universal Health Care.

People like me … campaign

The “people like me” campaign is one expression of the National Health Care for the Homeless Council’s commitment to the U2K Campaign. Launched in 1999, the “people like me” campaign aims to help homeless people advocate for universal health care. A poster contest was held and the winning entries reproduced as postcards which are being distributed to medical clinics serving homeless people nationwide to be signed and sent to Members of Congress. The postcards read, in part:

Everybody needs health care.

Especially people without homes.

People like me.

NHCHC also is urging organizations to join the U2K Campaign. For more information:
