“Re-imagining Healthcare: Fighting for Single Payer in California, What’s at Stake for Latinx Communities?”
The Trump administration has targeted immigrant communities with special vitriol against Latinx, Central Americans, Mexicans and AfroLatinx communities. Community healthcare practitioners and researchers are at the frontlines of resistance to the capitalist system of healthcare that has destroyed the safety net and rendered our communities vulnerable and exposed. Committed to forging a safety net for the working poor and people of color in Los Angeles and beyond, these practitioners are protecting the most basic of human rights: the right to quality healthcare across borders.
