There is much work to be done to let our Members of Congress know that people support and want to put the 30% of wasted money back into health care for ALL.. NO MORE INSURANCE COMPANY BILLING NIGHTMARES, ADVERTISING BUDGETS, AND SUPER RICH EXECUTIVES. While our Senators are on recess we are visiting their home offices in Seattle with a rally and a targeted visit with on-message discussion.

Georgia Davenport, Interim Director of Whole Washington, with political campaign experience both for candidates and initiatives. In 2008 she worked on the Martin Heinrich campaign in New Mexico. In 2016, she volunteered with the Bernie campaign and had the unique job and great privilege of driving Sanders surrogates like Susan Sarandon and Danny Glover during the DNC in Philly. Most recently, she was the phone bank organizer for I-735 which successfully opposed Citizens United.

Come rally for universal guaranteed life time coverage for ALL of Washington. We rallied to get our congressional reps to sign on to HR 676, now we are here to tell them: "if you don't do it we will."
Washington state is lucky to have an initiative process where we can use the power of the people to pass Single Payer healthcare. We believe healthcare is a human right and people's lives are more important than the insurance companies profit margins!!
This is a FREE event, but if you'd like to contribute to help pay for literature - and the initiative - please do so here: https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/bam

We are an all-volunteer, community-owned organization, and are not religiously or politically affiliated.
Why Show "Now the Time?"
We've seen enough to know that insurance-based healthcare is not effective for keeping costs down and giving everyone access to needed medical care. Advocates are totally committed to changing the healthcare system, and polls indicate that the general public supports the idea of universal healthcare. So it should be a no-brainer, right? Well, no. Some of the obstacles are obvious. Big money. Fear of government. But there seems to be something more, like a fog that keeps people from moving forward together. What is so difficult about the idea of looking after each other? This film intends to expose the fog, and will leave viewers examining what it means to be an American and what it takes to step into action.
