About Dakotans for Health

Our Mission

Grassroots Networks Win Initiatives

Dakotans for Health is built around a truth, proven time and time again in campaigns — including our own. Grassroots volunteers are your most valuable asset.


We consistently engage our grassroots volunteers to take meaningful actions and provide them with the support they need to be successful. That builds a self-sustaining community of volunteers and supporters who are empowered to pass, defend, and implement important public policies like Medicaid expansion. 


Compared to expensive traditional campaigns — which research shows waste millions of dollars on expensive TV ads and fancy consultants — we have a much larger impact for our investment.

How We're Different

Dakotans for Health is a grassroots network in South Dakota. Our mission: is to empower our fellow citizens by organizing them on healthcare and other kitchen table issues that are critical to the future of working class people.

Whether it is promoting open enrollment, organizing to pass ballot measures like Medicaid expansion, or protecting our democracy in court, Dakotans For Health is committed to an inclusive and healthier South Dakota. We envision a state marked by sustainability, justice, quality healthcare, affordable prescription drugs, and science. And we organize together to achieve it.


Our Grassroots Donors

Our programs are funded through grassroots donations by a lot of people like you.


By pooling grassroots financial support, we’re able to build early, local programs that previously only US Senate campaigns had been able to afford. Your contribution, no matter the amount, will help build the kind of grassroots change our state so desperately needs.
