The specific aims of the project are to utilize an active network of locally based consumer coalitions organized by regions throughout the state to generate an expanded base of advocates for health care reform, to employ more effective communications strategies to emphasize the benefits of reform for the insured as well as the uninsured in the state, and to engage the small business community through strategic partnerships with key labor and provider stakeholders.
