Health Over Profit for Everyone is a national campaign to win a National Improved Medicare for All (NIMA) healthcare system (also called a single payer health system). It is a project initiated by advocates for NIMA acting as individuals and is coordinated by Popular Resistance.
We will hold regular national conference calls starting Monday, February 13 at 9 pm Eastern/6 pm Pacific. These calls are open to everyone, but you must register to receive a number.
On the calls, we will provide political updates, educate about NIMA, discuss strategy and plan actions to change the political culture in the United States so that NIMA is the only politically viable solution.
