Universal Health Care film and panel discussion

NOW IS THE TIME is a feature length film, with a run time of 71 minutes.
We’ve seen enough to know that insurance-based healthcare is not effective for keeping costs down and giving everyone access to needed medical care.​ Advocates are totally committed to changing the healthcare system, and polls indicate that the general public supports the idea of universal healthcare. So it should be a no-brainer, right? Well, no. Some of the obstacles are obvious. Big money. Fear of government. But there seems to be something more, like a fog that keeps people from moving forward together. What is so difficult about the idea of looking after each other? This film intends to expose the fog, and will leave viewers examining what it means to be an American and what it takes to step into action.

Panel discussion with members of Maine AllCare, Southern Maine Workers Center, and Maine State Nurses Association will follow the screening.
