Canvassing is fun and effective, our best answer to the drug and insurance industry misinformation campaign against universal health care. They have the money to buy media. We talk with the people.
National Nurses United, Health Care for All Oregon, and Mid-Valley Health Care Advocates are cooperating in a nation-wide canvassing campaign to listen to our neighbors, learn from their stories, needs, and values. You then tell your story and explain how a universal health care system can satisfy the needs and values of all Oregonians.
Come join us on May 25 for a canvass in Ward 8 of Corvallis.

Please check legislation/Oregon here for changes to “information for legislative constituent contact teams.” This is a rapidly evolving process, so please take note. For a short summary of the latest proposal, SB 770-1, click here.
MVHCA is an all-volunteer, community-based organization that has been kept going through the energy and personal resources of its dedicated founders, leaders and supporters. Its primary purpose at its founding in the early 1990s was to educate and advocate for decent, affordable health care for all Oregonians. And we think that involves something like Single Payer health care, combined with a change from the wasteful “fee-for-service” model to a “performance-based” health care delivery model that promotes and rewards integration and efficiency.
