Rally for Universal Health Care in Olympia on March 6

OLYMPIA — For the first time, a wide array of local organizations will gather together at the Rally for Universal Health Care from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, March 6 on the Capitol North Steps in Olympia. This action is endorsed by multiple labor organizations and all union members and community supporters are encouraged to attend.

Health Care for All-Washington, Health Care Is a Human Right WA, Puget Sound Advocates for Retirement Action, Whole Washington and many others will join together to celebrate legislative victories that move our state toward a universal health care system that is affordable, equitable, and accessible to all Washington residents. Also among the sponsoring organizations are AFSCME Council 28/WFSE, AFT Washington, Retired Public Employees Council, and the Washington State Nurses Association.

On the next to last day of the 2024 legislative session, participants will also advocate for pending bills and call out obstacles to further progress. This rally is a step towards building grassroots awareness of our statewide movement for universal health care.

Invited speakers include legislators and representatives of labor organizations, women’s rights groups, civil rights organizations, immigrant and refugee organizations, faith communities, community health boards, Democratic LD organizations, medical students, healthcare professionals, and legal advocacy groups.
