The California Endowment’s #Health4All campaign highlights the important contributions of undocumented Californians to our state’s communities and economy, while raising awareness of their lack of access to affordable health care coverage. Though the Affordable Care Act has expanded access to health care for millions of Californians, over 1 million undocumented Californians will remain uninsured. Undocumented Californians are students, mothers, fathers, neighbors and community members. Illness affects everyone, and a person’s place of birth shouldn’t determine if they can or cannot receive necessary medical treatment. That’s why The California Endowment’s #Health4All campaign is helping to drive a dialogue to move our health care system to one that is inclusive of ALL Californians.
What We’re Doing
- Educating Californians about the economic and social contributions of undocumented Californians, and the need to make affordable, quality health care accessible to everyone.
- Providing residents and grassroots organizations with resources to help find valuable services for the remaining uninsured, and information to make their voices heard in local community decision-making.
- Advocating to maintain and expand California’s health care safety net services for the remaining uninsured.
