After the Pandemic: Rebuilding the Medicare for All Movement

Sat, April 9, 2022 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

$3 – $11

with Mark Dudzic

The world’s most expensive healthcare system failed catastrophically under the real-world structure test of the pandemic. This crisis drove home both the absurdity of linking healthcare to employment and the importance of treating healthcare as a decommodified public good. But the politics of the emerging post pandemic period are not conducive to big, transformative initiatives like Medicare for All. We will explore this disjuncture between social necessity and political possibility and how it might be resolved with particular emphasis on the role of the institutional labor movement.

MARK DUDZIC is the Chair of the Labor Campaign for Single Payer and is a longtime union organizer and activist.
