I – 1600 volunteer because healthcare is a human right

Editor,

Whole Washington is an ambitious group of citizens and health care professionals, determined to bring universal health care coverage to Washington state through a ballot initiative.

The organization was formed in January 2017, and since then it has been getting endorsements and supporters from all over the state.

The Whole Washington website, wholewashington.org has answers to your questions, how it will work, how it will be paid for and how much the state can save.

Organizations can endorse this effort and donations are welcome.

If any interested groups on South Whidbey would like a training, I have worked on an initiative campaign before and would be happy to meet with other volunteers. allie@whidbey.com.
