Therapist for Single Payer Activist Award 2015    _DSC8757 - Version 2

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead

The Single Payer Health Care movement has been growing for decades in the United States because of the vision and persistence of many individuals. TSP’s Single Payer Activists Award recognizes those people who have dedicated their time, energy and creativity to the evolution of a universal health care system in California and the nation. Our Single Payer Activist Awardees are working in their individual arenas, speaking to their audiences. We come together to celebrate the power of our parallel efforts. This year the awards will go to:

Union Activist: Carl Finamore (IAMAW and SF Labor Council)

Community Activist: Margot Smith (documentarian)

National Activist: Bernie Sanders (via video)

Political Activist: Dave Jones (CA Insurance commissioner) received by Deputy Insurance Commissioner Chris Schultz

Therpists Activist: Ester Wanning




Thank you for making our 1st Annual Awards Presentation and Dance a success! We were deeply touched by the opportunity to honor the awardees, Quentin Young, Nancy Friedman, Don Bechler, Cindy Young and Mark Leno.

We raised some funds for our work and had a great time dancing the Single Payer Slide.
