HEALTH  WORKER  ORGANIZING

COLLECTIVE POWER TO TACKLE THIS PANDEMIC  AND BEYOND

During this Right to Health Web-In, our panelists unpacked the barriers to organizing many  health workers face and share strategies for future collective action. We discussed how health professionals can organize to tackle this pandemic and stop the recurring waves of deadly pandemics that current policies perpetuate. Topics included the actions we can take together to pass preventative legislation and how we can organize together to make sure that the next President of the United States has adopted the plan we need for a healthier future.
