Join the Dolores Huerta Foundation, in urging Gov. Newsom, Speaker Anthony Rendon & President Pro Tempore Toni G. Atkins to pass AB4 to extend health care coverage to our undocumented community. Providing health care is a human right.
Undocumented adults—our parents and siblings, friends and neighbors, taxpayers and workers in our economy—remain locked out of comprehensive healthcare, making them the largest population in California with no health insurance. Any effort towards universal coverage, whether in California or nationally, will not be successful until everyone, regardless of status, has access to care.Your signature is an act of solidarity for social justice.


Unase a la Fundación Dolores Huerta al exigirles al Gov. Newsom, Speaker Anthony Rendon y la Presidenta Pro Tempore Toni G. Atkins que pasen la ley AB4 para cubrir a nuestra comunidad indocumentada con seguro médico. La atención médica es un derecho humano.
Los adultos indocumentados — nuestros padres y hermanos, amigos y vecinos, contribuyentes y trabajadores de nuestra economía — permanecen excluidos de la atención médica integral, lo que los convierte en la población más grande de California sin seguro médico. Cualquier esfuerzo hacia la cobertura universal, ya sea en California o a nivel nacional, no tendrá éxito hasta que todos, independientemente de su estado migratorio, tengan acceso a servicios médicos. Tu firma es un acto de solidaridad para la justicia social.

National Healthcare Decisions Day with Dolores Huerta

“(This is an opportunity to) determine what kind of care we want, whether we want life-extending measures depending on our condition, and who will speak for us in case we get a life-threatening illness and cannot communicate our wishes for end of life care,” Huerta says in the video. “This is a great opportunity for us to reach out to our loved ones and start having those difficult but necessary conversations about advanced care planning.”
