Event Details:
Join us for a special First Friday Film Night screening of “American Hospital, Healing a Broken System,” as we delve into the depths of our nation’s health care challenges and see innovative solutions that could help provide fair and equitable access to medical care.
Get ready to be inspired following the screening by our esteemed panel of speakers. We have the privilege of hosting Maureen Cruise RN, a tireless advocate for single payer health care in California for over 20 years. Joining her is Greg Akili, a seasoned labor, community organizer, and political leader with a remarkable 50-year track record. And last but not least, we have Tsukuru Fors (he/they), a founder of CalRedBerets and Red Berets for Queers, vibrant grassroots coalitions of craftivists fighting for Medicare for All. Together, they will shed light on CalCare, the California single payer legislation, its potential to address the pressing issues highlighted in our film and lead us on actions to help California realize the goal of single payer healthcare for all.
In the United States, healthcare has become a force that dominates our economy, exerting an unsustainable stranglehold on our nation’s finances. Its out-of-control growth far outpaces the progress of our economy, with hospitals alone consuming a staggering one-third of the $4.5 trillion Americans will spend on healthcare this year. Surprisingly, this surpasses the amount spent on prescription drugs by threefold. You will see why it’s time to shine a spotlight on the hospital industry, hold them accountable for their financial practices, and demand transparency and responsible access.
In the film, you will witness the transformation of American hospitals as it exposes the disturbing grip of profit-driven motives on patient well-being and community health. “American Hospitals” explores the dark realities of exorbitant pricing, monopolistic practices, and the gaping disparities in access and treatment. Prepare to be captivated by the film’s revelations and embark on a journey toward restoring hospitals to their rightful place as pillars of affordable, community-focused care.
Don’t miss out on this event that reaches for a bold change in the future of healthcare in America. Mark your calendars for Friday, June 2, at 7:15 pm Pacific Time, and join us on Zoom for an evening of information sharing and empowerment. Remember to turn on your camera to connect with like-minded activists who share your passion. Additionally, we’ll be making announcements about upcoming events and actions you can take to make a tangible difference in our healthcare system.
Zoom doors swing open at 7:15, and the main event kicks off promptly at 7:30. Prepare to be engaged, inspired, and part of a meaningful conversation that will leave you energized. This is an extraordinary opportunity you don’t want to miss!
