We are the Charlotte chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program. PNHP is primarily comprised of physicians and other health professionals, but it welcomes and needs more members who support Medicare for All. You can join for as little as $50/year (free for medical and health professional students) and become part of the leading national Medicare for All advocacy group.
The main way we educate the public about Medicare for All is by speaking to groups - Rotary, Kiwanis, church, book clubs, political groups - surely you're a member of some group we could visit. Invite us, and become a speaker yourself by joining our Speakers Bureau.
Make your voice heard! It's not that hard, and it matters. We are happy to help with editing and suggestions. Here are some tips from PNHP. Most newspapers will publish a letter from you once every month. Keep them coming!

A growing majority of physicians support Medicare for All. Ask your doctors if they do, and if they don't, ask why not. Give them a Quick Facts sheet and explain how Medicare for All would help you or someone you know or love. If they're not already a member of PNHP, encourage them to join.
