For everyone that doesn’t have health insurance–listen to this NPR clip…it seemed to speak to exactly the situation that I face as a “starving artist.”
When you’re done with that, take some action by clicking this link.

With enough people clogging their inboxes, the message will be heard. Take the power back.
Another great thing about freelancer’s union is that they offer healthcare. Word.
