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!
