Smith has spoken in 43 states and the District of Columbia about single-payer health care reform. She has worked for National Nurses United/California Nurses Association, advocating for a single-payer system, and she co-chairs the “Healthcare Not Warfare” campaign for the Progressive Democrats of America.
