CT: National Physicians Alliance

The National Physicians Alliance creates research and education programs that promote active engagement of physicians with their communities to achieve high quality, affordable health care for all.  The NPA offers a professional home to physicians across medical specialties who share a commitment to professional integrity, health justice and advocacy. Fighting for equal access to health care, NPA supported Connecticut’s paid sick days legislation to give worker’s the time to care for their health and the health of their families.

MI: Universal Health Care Access Network


Michigan Universal Health Care Access Network (MichUHCAN) is a state-wide network that promotes comprehensive health care for all and improved health outcomes by addressing the social determinants of health through education, strategy development and advocacy. MichUCHAN was on the frontline of the healthcare reform conversation in Michigan and continues to be THE trusted voice in the healthcare access and availability conversation.

 MA: Boston Public Health Commission

Our mission is to protect, promote, and preserve the health and well-being of all Boston residents, particularly the most vulnerable.  We strive to fulfill our mission through a wide range of health initiatives that target preventable disease and injury. Through the years, public health has made great strides when it comes to infant mortality, childhood immunization, cancer, heart disease, and tuberculosis, to name a few.  Paid Sick Days are a basic right that should be provided to all workers.
