    Albany Phonebanking

    Stories are fundamental to movement building. Stories show how political issues are personal. We all have a health care story. Despite New York’s great wealth, over 1 million New Yorkers are uninsured and more than 3 million live below the federal poverty line, and millions more struggle to make ends meet. In Schenectady, Albany, and Rensselaer counties, 4 in 10 households earn less than the cost of living.

    Join us to make calls in the Capital District to invite folks to share their healthcare stories at the upcoming Capital District Truth Commission on Poverty in New York on July 13 in Schenectady. Phonerbankers will call individuals in the Capital District who have expressed interest in helping to pass the New York Health Act. Using a script, we will check-in with folks on our lists to see if they have ever faced financial barriers to healthcare and we will invite them to join us on July 13 in Schenectady to share their stories.  

    The Truth Commission on Poverty in New York State seeks to shine a light on the daily economic struggles New Yorkers are facing. Learn more about the Truth Commission here: https://laborreligion.org/truthcommission

    Community Health Film Series

    About the film: Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making Us Sick? is the award-winning documentary series that sounds the alarm about our socioeconomic and racial inequities in health – and searches for their causes. The film crisscrosses the country, investigating startling findings that suggest there is much more to our health than bad habits, health care, or unlucky genes. The series circles in on a slow killer hidden in plain view: how the social circumstances in which we are born, live and work can get under our skin. For more information, visit unnaturalcauses.org.

    Each week will feature 1 or more episodes of the series, followed by facilitated discussion with health scholars and health care practitioners. The episodes are self-contained, so please join us for one, two, or all sessions!
