Health Care is a Human Right!

Put People First! PA is a vehicle for everyday people across Pennsylvania to unite, build our power, and claim our human rights.

We’re organizing across the state through our nine Healthcare Rights Committees and members in 17 counties.

We’re a human rights organization, and our current campaign is for the human right to health care: everyone deserves the care they need, when they need it, without going broke. There is enough for all of us – a truly universal health care system is possible. We need to organize to get it.
