Event Details

The California Health Professional Student Alliance’s (CaHPSA) Lobbying Activities will be structured differently than they have been in previous years. Since the Single Payer movement in the state of California does not have a single payer bill to lobby for, we see this as a unique opportunity to create an advocacy strategy that educates students across the state, while simultaneously contributing to the strategic plan to reach single payer in California put forth by the other members of the AllCare Alliance. CaHPSA’s strategy is to lobby local city and county governments and school districts to pass a resolution that will urge Sacramento to pass state legislation for single payer in the next session.

Two day event includes:

 

Southern California 

 

(Jan 11): Training Day features collaboration between health professional student leaders, physicians, public officials and health policy experts. Our goal is for students to learn about single-payer health care and  prepare an effective meeting with their legislators. 

 

(Jan 13): Day of Action is the actual Lobby Day, and it starts with a march through downtown Los Angeles from Pershing Square to the steps of the Los Angeles City Hall where we will hold a huge rally. We will then go inside City Hall and the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors office to tell our elected officials why we care so much about the fundamental right to healthcare and ask them to support our resolution for universal healthcare via single payer or medicare for all.
