MD SINGLE PAYER HEALTH LEGISLATION BILL - CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES NOW

ACTION ALERT: On Monday, February 5th, a bill creating a SINGLE-PAYER HEALTHCARE system for the State of Maryland will be introduced in Annapolis. USE THE BELOW LINK to find your appropriate Senator and Delegates

The Healthy Maryland Act of 2018, sponsored by Senator Paul Pinsky and Delegate Erek Barron, would create a single-payer system introducing guaranteed quality care to all Marylanders. The primacy and relevance of this legislation bears repeating: "Health Care for All" is a centerpiece of our legislative agenda, and this act would be a landmark achievement for progressives statewide.

The bill is being introduced to the Senate this Monday, and the House one week later - so, we are asking everyone to call their representatives THIS WEEKEND, and urge them to co-sponsor this important legislation.
Should any Senator or Delegate commit to co-sponsoring the Healthy Maryland Act, please contact Korey Hartwich with National Nurses United with the important news (khartwich@nationalnursesunited.org, 240-235-2006).

TALBOT COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING - Attend meeting and/or contact board member to show your support for teachers and staff

The school board is refusing to honor the contract negotiated three years ago with the education staff, denying an agreed-upon cost-of-living increase and restricting previously approved partner benefits. They aren't keeping their word, even though these hard-working men and women keep their word every day, working more hours than they are contracted for, spending their own money on educational resources and school supplies, supporting our students in the classroom and around the community.
