THE DRIVE FOR UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE (DUH) travels across the country to promote and help establish a tax-supported, fully comprehensive, non-discriminatory healthcare system for all residents of the U.S. 

DUH is incredibly fortunate to have forged a fast friendship and productive co-dependency with The Healthcare Movie and its creators, Laurie Simons and Terry Sterrenberg. DUH events can include a screening of the film and a discussion afterwards with Laurie, Terry, Sue, Donna, and other advocates, when audience members can ask questions, share their own stories, and learn more about single-payer healthcare, the movie, and DUH.

        Terry, Laurie, and Sue         

The costs involved in taking DUH and the movie on these advocacy journeys come out of our own pockets, along with money we raise from various crowdfunding effots and our supporters along the way. Vehicles must be rented, gas purchased, food and hydration provided (often our sponsoring advocates host meals for us!), and lodging is either in inexpensive motels or supplied by local supporters who generously open their homes to members of our group. Please consider contributing to our efforts to help bring expanded and improved Medicare to all residents of the United States.

Our recent West Coast tour cost over $10,000 and we’re already planning the next trip, along with looking ahead to our BIG plans for 2015, which will require more money than many hospital bills. We’re really going to need your help! No matter what, though, we’re not stopping until we’ve driven single-payer healthcare forward onto the the president’s desk to be signed into law!


Join us by helping to fund our trips, by driving with us from city to city, or both!

We CAN do this, but, like true universal healthcare, we need
