open letter signers

We are Rhode Island health care providers and advocates who witness daily the inhumanity and irrationality of the current health insurance system.  COVID-19 has highlighted the dire consequences of tying health insurance to jobs and treating it not as a human right, but as a "commodity," affordable only to some. We demand improved Medicare For All.
