Join older adults, disabled people, family caregivers, & home care workers to share stories and learn about the urgent need to pass the New York Health Act to fix our broken long-term care system.

Our special guest, Ady Barkan, is a nationally-recognized healthcare activist who, at 32, was diagnosed with ALS. He is the co-founder of the Be a Hero Fund and an organizer for the Center for Popular Democracy where he led the Fed Up campaign and founded Local Progress. He has been featured in The NY Times and Politico and in Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2020 list.

Everybody In, Nobody Out! #PassNYHealth

Everybody In, Nobody Out! #PassNYHealth

June 7, 2021, 9:30am - June 7, 2021, 4:00pm

Washington Park, Albany NY

We are the closest we have ever been to winning universal healthcare for all New Yorkers. We ask you to join us in Albany on Monday, June 7th at 9:30 AM sharp for our final push to win the New York Health Act THIS legislative session which ends on June 10.

Almost 7 years ago, the Campaign for New York Health formed to build a statewide movement to pass the New York Health Act which guarantees comprehensive public healthcare to all New Yorkers that live or work in New York State. With the New York Health Act, a predictable progressive tax on workers and employers will fund a comprehensive public health system that will mean every New Yorker, regardless of immigration status or ability to pay, will receive the care they need without paying skyrocketing premiums, deductibles, and copays.

This past March, primary sponsors of the NY Health Act -- Assemblymember Richard Gottfried and Senator Gustavo Rivera -- introduced the NY Health Act with MAJORITY SUPPORT in BOTH the NYS Assembly and Senate for the first time ever. It is power of the people that got us to the cusp of victory, and it will be the power of the people that push the NY Health Act over the finish line.

The Campaign for NY Health is planning a major statewide day of action in Albany on Monday, June 7th. We are calling on our partners from across the state to join us. Everyone will reach Albany by 9:30 AM for breakfast and begin actions by 11:00 AM.

Here’s what you need to know:

- Please RSVP by filling out this pre-registration form as soon as possible if you’re interested in joining us: forms.gle/9T9pWh8j23GvHKGBA. Your RSVP will not be considered a final commitment, but is necessary to help us determine logistics. A final registration form will be circulated once all of the transportation and COVID safety logistics have been determined, so that you can take those details into consideration before confirming your attendance. Please pay special attention to the form if you are a representative, member, volunteer, or staff person for an organization affiliated with the Campaign for NY Health; we want to hear from you!

- Logistics for transportation and COVID safety are underway. We will either arrange for busses or coordinate carpools, depending on the number of initial RSVPs and what people are comfortable with.

If you have any questions, please contact Mohini Sharma, the Organizing Director ofMetro Justice, one of the founding organizations of the Campaign for New York Health. You can email Mohini at [email protected], call her cell at 585-623-9633 and leave a message, or text her cell.

Looking forward to winning the New York Health Act with you!

April 28, 2021, 8:00pm - April 28, 2021, 9:30pm

*Habra interpretación simultánea al Español en el foro de candidatos.

Join the NYC Care Campaign members on Wednesday, April 28th from 8:00pm to 9:30pm for a District 6 NYC Council Candidate Forum (Upper West Side). We're excited to hear from the candidates their ideas to transform the domestic work & care sector to one that works for everyone: workers, parents, family caregivers, older adults and people with disabilities.

Our main issues are:
Government investment in the domestic and care sector to create good quality jobs and make care accessible to all New Yorkers, so parents, older adults and people with disabilities have the care and support they need at home
Advancing equality by passing anti-discriminatory and labor laws to protect low-wage workers, in particular immigrant Black, Indigenous and women of color (BIWOC).

The NYC Care Campaign is a growing coalition of domestic workers, employers, parents, families, caregivers, older adults, and people with disabilities working together to transform New York City’s care economy to one that is just, equitable and sustainable for all. The campaign is led by the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Hand in Hand: The Domestic Employers Network, Adhikaar, Carroll Gardens Association. Some of the endorser organizations are Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, Innovative Youth Care, among other local groups.

NYC Care Campaign: Mayoral Interview with Maya Wiley

NYC Care Campaign: Mayoral Interview with Maya Wiley

April 25, 2021, 6:30pm - April 25, 2021, 7:15pm

Hand in Hand: The Domestic Employers Network45 Broadway, Suite 320New York, NY10006 Map

The NYC Care Campaign is kicking off our first mayoral interview this weekend! Join the NYC Care Campaign members on Sunday, April 25th from 6:30pm to 7:15pm EST for an intimate interview with Maya Wiley, mayoral candidate for NYC.

Domestic workers continue to be relegated from major protections including a concrete government plan to address human trafficking that impacts foreign domestic workers, ensuring human rights protections in the workplace, and providing support for the care sector and immigrant workers during the pandemic. Access to care also continues to be an issue for working families, older adults, and people with disabilities. While NYPD's budget continues to increase each year, other vital sectors like the care sector are defunded. The new NYC Mayor must do everything possible to end the care crisis.

We hope to see you on Zoom this Sunday to listen to Maya Wiley's plan for NYC!
