Springfield, IL—The Healthcare Justice March announced on March 3, 2015 that NationofChange is the first national advocacy organization to become a partner in the March, slated to occur on Aug. 1, 2015, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
“We are thrilled to have the support of such a powerful national organization that’s fighting for justice on many fronts,” said Sue Saltmarsh, founding director of the Drive for Universal Healthcare (DUH), the primary organizer of the March. “NationofChange’s investment in the March is proof to us that we’re right to pursue grassroots action as one effective strategy for reaching our goal of providing access to comprehensive, tax-supported, equitable healthcare to every resident of the United States.”
NationofChange was formed in 2009 by Donna Luca, who recognized that concerned people needed an easy way to get information and become involved in making changes on the issues that mattered most to them. Today, funded entirely by mostly small reader donations, NationofChange provides a progressive platform that empowers individuals to create on-the-ground social. environmental, and economic change, one action at a time.
"We are very excited to be part of such a powerful event to help mobilize people in the fight for an equal healthcare system for all American citizens," said NationofChange's Activism Coordinator Ashley Curtin. "Our goal is to inform the public and close the gap between people and care."
