We believe everyone should be able to get quality, affordable healthcare provided by caregivers who are valued and respected.

By working to elect officials who support that vision we can ensure we have allies in the fight for better working conditions, stronger contracts, and access to care, so that all Californians — no matter what we look like, where we live, or what work we do — can lead happy, healthy lives. SEIU-UHW is also committed to supporting candidates who are aligned with our vision for racial justice.
