Candidate Liaison Project for the 2020 election: The Foundation will partner with universal health care activists and empower them with tools. The goal is to assign a candidate liaison to every candidate running in office in Colorado.
“We’ll make sure all candidates have the information they need to either become universal health care proponents, or at least understand what the arguments are for UHC,” Candidate Liaison Project c0-coordinator Laurie Beckel. “And for those candidates already on board, we’ll empower them to become the policy drivers when they get elected. They can become the next Rep. Emily Sirota, Rep. Sonya Jaquez-Lewis, or Sen. Mike Foote.” Contact Laurie Beckel, Candidate Liaison Project Co-Coordinator: lfbdewdrop6852(at)gmail.com
Statewide Foundation needs funds

(Anyone who’s good at fundraising or grantwriting, let us know)
We really believe good data will help make the strong case for improved Medicare for All/universal health care in Colorado.
Need to raise $13 million for the 2022 campaign
Host an improved Medicare for All Panel. This panel can represent the current partnerships currently working together. Panel presentations, especially with a good moderator, are not only easy but effective in educating – instead of the simplistic sound bites that are on all sides right now. They also get people active! The Foundation offers help to anyone who would like to hold a What is IM4A? event in their community.
