    Commit to the October Challenge to help recruit businesses to stand with us in this fight for humane health care.

    Can you recruit 13 businesses in one month? There will be prizes for top canvassers!

We want to help make this as easy as possible to get out there on the streets.  Have conversations with the bodega on the corner, the dry cleaner and cafe down the block, the farm up the street, the dental office your kids go to, the nail salon, the filmmaker you met at last night's party, the lawyer you used to work with, etc. 

    Share widely! Here is the Facebook event.

    DSA - NYHA Canvassing and Training

    October is the season to knock doors! But instead of treats, we'll be asking for universal healthcare because being bankrupted by medical costs and exploited by for-profit insurers is the real dirty trick.

    Please join us in canvassing Senator Flanagan's district, who is the current State Senate Majority Leader. We will be educating constituents and building support for the NYHA using an easy survey tool.

    Meet in library parking lot for a brief training session at 1PM. Afterwards, we will cut turf, assign buddies (if needed) and start canvassing.
