Video: Healthcare is a Human Right Community Meetings

Because of the grassroots organizing of the Healthcare is a Human Right Campaign, in 2011 Vermont became the first state in the nation to pass universal healthcare legislation. As Vermont's healthcare system is changing because of federal healthcare reform, there will also be many decisions made over the next year about how our new healthcare system will work. We must keep our eyes on the prize and continue to organize for a universal healthcare system that treats healthcare as a public good and puts people before profits.

This fall and winter, the Healthcare is a Human Right Campaign will be holding a series of community meetings across the state to talk about the future of Vermont's healthcare system. Bring your story of the healthcare crisis, questions, ideas, and hopes for the future. Learn about how the people of Vermont can keep our state from getting derailed on the road to universal healthcare. And get involved to make sure Vermont stays true to its human rights commitment to create the nation's first universal healthcare system.

Let's keep our eyes on the prize, and continue our struggle for a universal healthcare system where we get what we need, when we need it.
