Take Action

Work together locally for Single Payer Healthcare

Attend an important meeting Thursday, March 25th, 7pm to 8:30pm to join together with Labor, Healthcare Professionals and Business to acheive Healthcare for All! 

For those of you new to this effort, HPEACE is an organization of Sonoma County health professionals advocating for social justice. HPEACE has chosen to partner with North Bay Jobs with Justice to expand our advocacy of single payer beyond health professionals to include labor and business groups in the North Bay.  

This is an attempt to broaden the membership of the working group to all organizations and individuals in the North Bay who are advocating for single payer, hoping to provide support, collaboration and shared resources. 
 
We hope you can join us at this critical time in the effort.

Santa Rosa teachers earn $15,000 less in total compensation than the average educator in California. It is time to acknowledge Santa Rosa educator's hardships over the rising cost to live here with not just words of empathy, but with a reasonable offer at the table.  

GET READY!  

It is time for SRTA members to stand up in solidarity with each other and rally to improve our students' learning and our teaching conditions. We need to win improvements to attract and retain the best educators for SRCS.  As we see around our country, and in our own state and county, when teachers unite and fight, we win.
