The weekend of June 16, several of our healthcare working group members undertook a hybrid canvassing venture on DART, our public transit system. Members brought informative Medicare for All handouts and personally created posters with messaging like “Healthcare is a human right” and “Ask me about Medicare for All.”
We rode the DART for nearly 2 hours, cultivating casual, approachable conversations with riders who noticed our posters. Many people reacted positively to our message, agreeing with us the healthcare today is unaffordable and unattainable for most of society and should be treated as a human right. Dozens of handouts were given out, and several people signed up to receive more information.
In all, the event was a success and could easily be organized frequently as a community outreach opportunity for future working group organizing.
