More than 200 clergy representing many faiths and every region of New York have signed a letter calling on the NY State Legislature to pass the New York Health Act. On Tuesday, May 23, dozens of us will come to Albany deliver it in person.
All people of faith and conscience are welcome to join a rally and press conference outside the Senate Chamber at 11 am.
With the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid under threat, NOW is the time to pass the NY Health Act and guarantee quality, affordable health care for every single New Yorker!

Our health care system is like that pair of old worn out jeans patched so many times that you finally have to buy a new pair. There is now a new Medicare-For-All bill in the NY State Legislature that would provide publicly financed health insurance coverage for ALL New Yorkers, eliminate the patched, profit-driven and wasteful private insurance system, and actually save money.
The New York Health Act passed the NY State Assembly this last Tuesday, May 16th, after having passed each of these past three years. The bill this year lacks only one State Senator’s endorsement to come to the Senate floor for a vote this.
Join Susan Soboroff, M.D. and Susan Beckley, Small Business Administrator to a lively and frank discussion after they present the details of this health care bill, why it is important, and what it means for you, your family, and your workplace.
Find out how the NY Health Act would affect your hard earned health care dollars, property taxes, and your health.
The New York State Assembly has done the right thing and voted to pass the New York Health Act and now it’s time for the Senate to do its job. Come out to rally and DEMAND that Sen. Marty Golden use his position on the New York Health Committee to release the bill (S4840) from committee for a floor vote. The legislative session ends in just a few weeks and New Yorkers deserve universal, single-payer healthcare.
Rally to pass the New York Health Act at Marty Golden's Bay Ridge, Brooklyn office! Let's demand his Health Committee bring the New York Health Act to the floor of the NYS Senate for a vote! Let's demand to know why Marty Golden opposes saving the New York State budget, businesses and individual residents BILLIONS of dollars in wasteful administrative costs. Let's demand that our state becomes the first to simplify the health insurance system and create a national model.

To co-sponsor the rally and lend your group's networking support, please message us on Facebook @SBPResistThe New York Health Act will provide ALL residents with comprehensive coverage (primary of your choice, specialists, mental health, vision, dental, prescription drugs and more) on a graduated income scale that would benefit families making less than $400,000 (sorry richest 2%) - and it would do so while eliminating deductibles and co-pays. Since New York State would finance the program, the tab will be less than NY currently pays in administrative costs associated with working with commercial insurers.
This is not about tribalism or red vs. blue, it's about saving the lives and health of New Yorkers while also saving state and local governments, schools, businesses, families and 98% of individuals BILLIONS of dollars.Health Care is a Human Right! #PassNYHealth

On Friday June 2, we are FLOODING State Senate offices with calls in support of New York Health, ESPECIALLY in districts where the Senator is not yet a cosponsor of the New York Health Act. You can see the bill sponsors here and you can look up your own Senator here.
We need lots of help to make this day of action a success. To volunteer with outreach (phonebanking and social media!), please email email@example.com
More details coming soon! In the meantime, you can invite others to join you at the event with this link.
Calling Your State Senator Look them up here or dial the NYS Senate Switchboard at (518) 455-2800. You will be asked to give your zip code and the operator will connect you to your Senator’s office.
Here is a sample script:
“Hello. My name is ________. I am calling to urge Senator _______ to sponsor the New York Health Act [S4840] this session because healthcare is a human right. With healthcare under attack by Republicans in Congress, Senator ______ can take action to guarantee healthcare for all of us in New York by supporting New York Health.”
If they respond that your Senator is already a sponsor, say THANK YOU and urge them to promote the bill to their Senate colleagues.
