Alameda progressives met with Assemblymember Rob Bonta in Sacramento Wednesday, April 26, in support of a new state initiative with the aim of providing healthcare for all Californians.

The Alamedans joined around 1,000 nurses, physicians and other activists to support Senate Bill 562, California’s “Health Care for All” bill as it successfully passed its first test by sailing through the Senate Health Committee. The bill would establish a single-payer system in California at a time when the Affordable Care Act is under renewed and continued attack at the federal level.

Bonta, co-author of the bill, greeted the contingency during the day-long action.
