Our goals

  • to support, endorse, and promote candidates who believe in progressive health care

  • to educate potential candidates and the general public about progressive health care

  • to engage health care professionals, patients, and caregivers in political advocacy

Care which respects all individuals, including and especially those from vulnerable and victimized subgroups

Universal, comprehensive access, tailored to the needs of the sick and poor

High-quality population and health services research taking into account the priorities of patients and communities

Progressive healthcare demands and goes hand-in-hand with progressive politics in other areas, including but not limited to antiracism (e.g., Black Lives Matter); refugee and immigration policy; disability rights; the rights of women, minorities, and LGBTQ; and criminal justice reform.

We are proud to partner with the National Democratic Training Committee to help empower candidates who support progressive care.
