Artists Need Healthcare Too

How many artists have access to healthcare that others get working in corporate America? By the very nature of the job (and we're not just talking fine artists), art workers are not as likely to have access to group healthcare. They are more likely to be independent and contract workers. (Which is a good enough reason by itself to move away from employer-based health plans!)

If you are at all interested in having reasonable health care available to all, no matter where you work, see what this coalition of arts organizations sent to congress. And then add your own voice.
