Nurse holding sign "We need Medicare for All"

Before summer’s end, an estimated 27 million people will lose their health insurance due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in addition to the 29 million who were uninsured before this pandemic even began. In response to the dire need for systemic reform, National Nurses United will be hosting a Summer Strategy Call for thousands of activists across the country. The call will feature various movement leaders who will speak to the disproportionate impact of the crisis on communities of color. Activists will also hear an overview of the summer organizing plan to simultaneously grow the size of the Medicare for All movement while increasing pressure on Congress to take action.
