Who Are the Uninsured?

Look around. The person sitting next to you on the bus, the person walking down the street, the person pushing a baby stroller, your family member, your friend, your neighbor: Any of them could be the uninsured.

They are people in desparate need of health care coverage. According to the American Medical Association, 1 out of 7 Americans–or 45 million people–have no health insurance.

But with everyone taking a stand, with everyone speaking up for what’s right, with everyone working together to make their voice heard, everyone can make a difference–and everyone can have health insurance.
