New Video From Vermont: Fighting for Universal Health Care at the State Level


Because the federal health reform bill signed into law today fails to make health care truly universal and equitable, human right to health care advocates across the country are pushing their state legislatures to implement more effective and comprehensive measures at the state level. In Vermont, for example, the Vermont Workers’ Center’s Healthcare is a Human Right Campaign has galvanized legislative action with a powerful grassroots organizing and advocacy strategy. This recently released video tells the story of Vermont’s health care crisis, what a health care system based on the human right to health care would look like, and what the Campaign is doing to make this a reality in Vermont. The video was produced by the Vermont Workers’ Center (VWC), NESRI, and the Media Mobilizing Project. The Vermont Workers Center is a partner of NESRI’s human right to health program.  For more information on the VWC’s Healthcare is a Human Right Campaign, visit their website.
