NOW IS THE TIME is a follow-up to The Healthcare Movie (2011).  This new feature film highlights national and state level efforts to bring Single Payer healthcare to America.

Advocates of Single Payer are totally committed to changing the system, and polls indicate that the general public supports the idea of universal healthcare.  So, it should be a no-brainer, right?  Well, no. Some of the obstacles are obvious.  Big money.  Fear of government.  But there seems to be something more, like a fog that keeps people from moving forward together.  What is so difficult about the American idea of looking after each other?  This film blows away the fog.

Special Guests: Dr. Chris Covert-Bowlds, representing Heath Care For All - Washington; Georgia Davenport, Campaign Director for Whole Washington

Release Year: 2016

Running Time: 71 minutes

Director: Terry Sterrenberg & Laurie Simons

    I’m also wondering if there is some kind of resist the current administration training: how to talk to right-wingers in an effective way; how to publicly resist.
