Debru T Carthan, Executive Committee, Kaiser District 9 – Healthcare Justice Slate

My coworkers should vote for me to lead on the Executive Board because I believe in providing strong leadership. There’s nothing that I’ll ask of my coworkers that I’m not willing to do myself. They can look at my track record and see that I’m a leader who is worth following. The vision I have for the union is one where everyone feels a sense of belonging. I believe that we have a union that can do anything, as long as we stick together. We also have to raise the standards of the healthcare community and I’m very passionate about helping to do that. Because, “When We Fight, We Win!” 

Healthcare Justice matters for the community I work in and with because I believe that access to quality healthcare is a human right. We as a union cannot be an island. If my community is thriving, then I’m thriving. We live in one of the richest countries in the world and people shouldn’t have to choose between paying rent or filling a prescription. I am my brother’s keeper, and will fight for all to have what my family and I get to enjoy.
