We know Dakotans for Health can be trusted to stand up for working families. That is why the IBEW supports their constitutional amendment to expand Medicaid insurance to 42,000 of our friends and neighbors.

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 powered by the generosity of people like you, who are passionate about making a difference.

Through the power of grassroots donations, we are able to build programs that were previously only available to US Senate campaigns. But now, with your support, we can bring that same level of resources and impact to our own communities.


Will you consider making a contribution to support our efforts? Every dollar you give, no matter the amount, will help us build the kind of grassroots change that our state so desperately needs.

Together, we can make a real impact. Let's build a better future for our communities and for our country.
