CO4UHC Monthly Grassroots Call
Join the Colorado grassroots movement to win Improved Medicare for All, Colorado universal health!
On these monthly calls, activists get connected with others working on universal health care in Colorado, give updates on their recent actions, ask questions, volunteer, and team up to make a difference.
Workshop: Get your local elected body to endorse improved Medicare for All!
Join Fort Collins, Denver, the Town of Jamestown, Colorado and more than 100 U.S. cities in the action.
Saturday 11/19 at Noon Statewide on Zoom
The goal of this workshop is to give health care providers, activists, and legislators the tools they need to pass Proclamations in your communities for Improved Medicare for All. These actions show our Colorado legislators and US Congresspeople that we want universal health care! Colorado legislation is in the works to get us there.
We’ll hear from volunteers who did the work in Denver and Fort Collins. They’ll respond to your questions and provide the tools you need to get a proclamation passed in your community.

Mend Our Broken US Health Care System!
Noon, Saturday July 30th
Shattered Lives & Health Care Justice
Noon, May 14
Health care is a human right and a basic need. Lack of and limited access to health care creates barriers and is a root cause of social injustice. The current health care system is fundamentally unfair; it objectifies people, exploits health care providers and patients for the profit of the few, and harms most of us in some way. Providing health care to EVERY person living in the US would solidify our commitment to a healthy and just society while leveling the playing field.
Join Medical Professionals for Universal Healht Care (MP4UHC) for a diverse and lively panel discussion on the intersection of social justice and health care. We will discuss how all social justice issues are related and how a single payer universal health care system is an important step in guaranteeing social justice for all.
Denver: Health Care—Be Bolder Before We Keel Over
8:30 a.m. Vigil 10 a.m. Speakers & Rally
Friday, March 18
Colorado State Capitol, northeast sidewalk beside the northeast Capitol lawn
200 East Colfax Ave., Denver, Colorado 80203
Tell Gov. Jared Polis and Colorado legislators: act on the data you have!
About 3,500 Coloradans die EACH Year due to treatable causes. And that was before COVID-19.
Colorado legislators and Gov. Polis in September received the results of study by the Colorado School of Public Health showing that Colorado would save $billions and increase employment by including every Coloradan in one nonprofit single payer for our private health care. It was a bi-partisan bill, the Health Care Cost Savings Act of 2019, that led to this study! The legislators are sitting on the answer to covering every Colorado with quality health care.
Tell them to act on the solution they already have—before anymore of us keel over!
Online: Shattered—The Moral Crisis in American Health Care
11 a.m. MST Saturday, Feb. 19
Moral injury: knowing what needs to be done and being powerless to do it.
Health care providers have been dealing moral injury for years: doctors daily asked to violate their Hippocratic oath in order to appease corporate profiteers; nurses being asked to care for too many patients; physical therapists being shut out of patient care by insurance networks; mental health therapists unable to provide patient care due to the labyrinth of billing systems; patients refused care because they can’t afford it or aren’t profitable enough.
The U.S. broken health care system puts the profit of the few over the health care needs of the many. COVID has amplified an existing problem.
Come to our meeting and share your experiences, perspectives, and your questions. Join us for personal healing, resources, strategies and positive change.

Imagine! Health Care that Cares for You, Colorado
6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 21 on Zoom & Facebook
Featuring State Rep. Emily Sirota, health providers, and Coloradans like you!
Learn how you can help get the word out about an important new study showing that we could cover everyone in Colorado with quality health care and pay providers well while while spending hundreds of $millions to $billions less than we spend now.
The bipartisan Health Care Cost Savings Act Task Force commissioned the Colorado School of Public Health to do the analysis comparing Colorado’s current health care system with universal health via many payers and with a single payer nonprofit universal health care system for Colorado. The nonprofit single payer health care system beat out the others for both coverage and cost: Colorado would save up to $billions over what we now spend while covering every single Colorado man, woman, and child. We can spend less, cover everyone, increase employment, and have better health care for all in Colorado. Join us to learn more and take action to make universal health care a reality in our state.
