On July 24 NJUHC, the NJ Industrial Union Council, the Central Jersey Coalition Against Endless War, Our Revolution and other organizations are endorsing an action and rally in New Brunswick from 4:00–7:00 p.m. At 4:00 p.m. demonstrators will meet at Congressman Frank Pallone’s office at 67-69 Church Street to encourage him to sign on as a co-sponsor of HR676 — the Improved Medicare for All legislation currently before the U.S. House of Representatives. Demonstrators will then move to the corner of Albany and George streets to hold a rally and listen to speakers. For additional information email Carol Gay. This action and rally are part of a nationwide effort to honor Medicare’s anniversary and support its expansion to every U.S. resident. Please try to join us!

Meeting with Congressman Frank Pallone

At Pallone's Office

NJUHC coalition members and representatives from other labor, and progressive organizations met with NJ Congressman Frank Pallone on June 26th to encourage him to become a cosponsor of HR676, the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All legislation which currently has 113 and counting cosponsors in the US House of Representatives. Congressman Pallone expressed strong personal support for the expansion of Medicare to cover all ages but claims that he cannot become an official cosponsor because of his role on the Energy and Commerce Committee which deals with health. He agreed to meet again once the Republican efforts to repeal the ACA have played out. While we were disappointed with his decision we welcome the opportunity to meet again and keep pushing. 

NJUHC Speakers Bureau

The Speakers Bureau Committee met in late June to develop materials and strategies to insure that trained speakers on universal healthcare/ Improved Medicare for All will be available across the state. If you have a group or organization that would like a presentation on universal health care please send a request through our email account. njuniversalhealthcare@gmail.com

The next NJUHC membership meeting will be Saturday morning, October 14th.
