Add your photo to the DA healthcare stories booklet that will be shared with Members of Congress after the new year.
Act quickly to be added to the booklet before printing.
Photos could be of yourself, family or health-related, like a health receipt, medical equipment or prescription. You can even use the "I Heart Universal Healthcare" sign in a selfie picture at this link.
Even better, write a short description of why you love healthcare where you live and take a photo of you with your story, or maybe just your story if you like.
Your story of affordable, quality, accessible healthcare overseas will help Members of Congress understand what is possible in other countries – and what is possible for all Americans.
See below how you can participate in our campaign to support the improved Medicare4All bill in the House of Representatives.

I believe our most important work is getting out the vote for Democratic candidates and reforming electoral politics to safeguard voting right and get big money out of politics (including reforms in the Democratic Party).
I believe strengthening democracy in America is critical to achieving full economic, environmental, and social justice. This includes universal healthcare (Medicare4All), lower/free college tuition, the Green New Deal, and increased banking regulation.
As a professional fundraiser, I have experience in communications, media relations, direct marketing, volunteer management, gift solicitation, strategic planning, organizational development, and events. I am comfortable on TV and radio.
With training in diversity, inclusion, conflict resolution, management, anti-racism and anti-oppression, I was a strategist, spokesperson and canvasser in a highly contentious local community advocacy effort for an underserved and socio-economically diverse neighborhood.
I vote in Connecticut, along with 2 (soon to be 3) of my young adult daughters. A resident of Oakville, Ontario, I grew up in rural Massachusetts. My family lives simply and enjoys camping, visiting family, playing music, debating current issues, reading, watching movies, and attending protests. I also do improv and and serve on the board of my local neighborhood residents association.
