Coalition Building


Who we work with

Transforming the health care system is no easy task. It’s going to take a powerful coalition to fight back against the interests of insurance & pharmaceutical  companies. That’s why SMWC prioritizes working with other organizations who share a belief that health care is a human right and a commitment to advocating for universal publicly funded health care.

Our Maine Coalition Partners

Locally SMWC is a member of the Maine Health Care is a Human Right Coalition’s steering committee along with Maine AllCare and the Maine State Nurses Association. We are hoping to expand the coalition with endorsing organizations from across the state. If you’re organization is interested in endorsing the Maine HCHR Coalition please contact us.

Our HCHR Sister Organizations

Nationally, SMWC is part of a four-state collaborative–including the Vermont Workers’ Center, Put People First! Pennsylvania, Health Care is a Human Right Maryland, and the National Economic and Social Rights Initiative (NESRI)–that collectively strategizes and strengthens one another’s movements, while raising the national profile of the call for truly universal, equitable health care.
