This Toolkit is created and maintained by the LWV Health Care Reform Interest Group (formerly “Healthcare Reform for the U.S.,” HCR4US) (see contact info below).

Mission: The website and our network are dedicated to educating and mobilizing League members to work toward legislation and other reforms that enact the goals of our LWVUS health care position, with a strong focus on expanded and improved Medicare for All (a single-payer system). The materials are varied for different audiences, and they include pointers to resources for those who want to delve more deeply, and/or would like to do programming for local League or community meetings.
