Rocky Mountain High: APU Goes Home

$300 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 4 people in 57 months
Donna Smith   LAUREL, MD

Early in 2013, American Patients United is relocating home to Colorado.  APU's founder and current national coordinator, Donna Smith, will continue her health reform educating, writing and speaking on behalf of APU and will also begin half-time work at the Health Care for All Colorado Foundation. 


Donna formed American Patients United back in 2007 shortly after being featured with her husband, Larry, in Michael Moore's documentary film, SiCKO.  Through APU she began building the patient voice in support of a saner system and a single standard of high quality health care for all without financial barrier. 


With great joy, Donna worked since early 2008 with the wonderful nurses of National Nurses United and was first based in Chicago for a year before heading to Washington, D.C., where she has not had the same amount of time and autonomy to build APU and its base.    From a Colorado home base, Donna will be able to help APU grow and educate more people.

 

APU's website will take on a new look and blogs from Donna will be posted weekly.  A new video blog will feature some history of APU's work and updated news from the wider single-payer health reform community. Donna will employ talented activists from the wider Medicare-for-all-for-life reform movement to assist with APU's expansion and updates, and funds raised will support all of these changes.

 

Please give to support this move. APU is a 501(c)(3) organization, and your gifts are tax dedeuctible.

2013 will be a year of big changes for APU, and we need your support. In 2012, we helped mark the 5th anniversary of the release of SICKO, Michael Moore's 2007 documentary film on the broken U.S. health care system. We educated thousands of people about the need for a saner, more humane system in the U.S.

So, who will be the brave soul who first contributes to the American SiCKO's 5-year anniversary event and launch of a national push for healthcare as a human right? Fixing this system isn't just a human right, it's an economic necessity for the future of this nation. Join us, June 30th, 2012, in Philadelphia. And help us raise the funds to bring the subjects of SiCKO together again. Please donate today.
