Mercy Killers by Michael Milligan. Thank you to all who participated in the 2014 tour of Colorado.
We started our tour in Pueblo and wound our way throughout the state. After each performance, we had a "talk back" session with playwright/actor Michael Milligan. Below we see Michael on the far right, Nathan Wilkes (president of Health Care for All Colorado) in the center, and Dr. Tom Gottlieb (Health Care for All Colorado Foundation president) on the left. The show at the University of Colorado at Denver had just ended, and the audience was deeply engaged in discussion about various health systems they have seen around the world as well as their frustrations that many Americans just don't seem to know how much better single-payer is than the current for-profit, market-based system.

If you would like to join a local chapter of HCAC, click on the "Get Involved" link on the menu bar, click on the HCAC chapters option, and choose a chapter near you. We're always interested in starting new chapters where they are needed, so if you don't see one that meets your needs, let's talk about forming one.
