About Us

Who we are

Maine Healthcare Action is a 501(c)4 non-profit organization with a mission focused on universal health coverage here in the state of Maine.

Where we're going

We launched our campaign in January 2021, with the intention of getting a Universal Healthcare Resolve on the Maine Ballot, so that Maine voters have the opportunity to put this long overdue conversation to a vote.

Here is a Summary of Our Resolve:

“This initiated bill directs the joint standing committee having jurisdiction over health care and insurance matters to develop legislation to establish a system of universal health care coverage in the State and directs the joint standing committee to report out a bill to the Legislature to implement, by 2024, its proposal.”

The best way we can show that we value the worth and dignity of each Maine person is to demonstrate that we care equally for everyone’s health..

Where we are

We are in the process of collecting the necessary signatures to get the Universal Healthcare resolve on the Maine state ballot. 

Hundreds of volunteers have stepped up and have been collecting over the last several months. We are nearing the finish line and it is an all hands on deck moment. This is a citizen-led, citizen-fueled effort.

How you can help

Valid signatures from 63,067 voters are required to place our Universal healthcare Resolve on the ballot. Maine Health Care Action will strive to gather 80,000 signatures to account for invalid, lost, or improperly notarized ones.

We recognize this is a “heavy lift” and will require many Maine people to commit time and resources to accomplish the task. Please consider making a donation and learn more about how to volunteer today.
