My letter to my local DSA:
Dear VT chapter of DSA,
Was very glad to hear of the national campaign the DSA is spearheading on behalf of Improved Medicare For All. We, independent and affiliated volunteers, have had some involvement in helping to coordinate library events on behalf of single payer with the participation of the VT PNHP, the VT League of Women Voters and the filmmakers Laurie Simons and Terry Sterrenberg. Two groups in the Bennington area and the Middlebury area have been particularly active in community organizing. We also have had the support of Healthcare-now.org and donated films from The Fix It Team. Another group headed by the NH PNHP is also starting in New Hampshire.
Would the DSA be able to work with us in promoting a national letter-to-the editor and opinion articles to local media across the nation advocating and educating for Improved Medicare For All? The idea is to decide on a date or several dates where volunteers in every state flood the media with letters, etc. on behalf of single payer throughout the US. Another idea which has been advanced is to have vans or other vehicles that can go into low income areas or to venues they frequent to offer free health services and to register to vote a population that has traditionally not voted.
Thank you for furthering education and advocacy on Improved Medicare For All. Looking forward to speaking with you.
