Vermont Workers' Center Release "Voices of Vermont Healthcare Crisis"
The Vermont Workers' Center (VWC) officially issued a comprehensive report entitled Voices of the Vermont Healthcare Crisis: The Human Right to Healthcare based on the organization's survey over 1,200 Vermonters and human rights hearings across the state last fall. The findings of this documentation are captured in a report and short video. "In this report, we present a collection of voices of Vermonters impacted by the healthcare crisis and present data examining our current healthcare system which is failing us," said Dawn Stanger, President of the Vermont Workers' Center. "We found that over 95% of Vermonters believe healthcare should be a human right. We are organizing a statewide grassroots network to establish healthcare as a human right and making it a public good for everyone."
