Statewide Day of Outreach for New York Health - September 23, 2017

SDO_092317_NB_banner_A01.png

The Campaign for New York Health is committed to building a powerful grassroots movement to pass and implement universal health care in New York. To build the base of support we need to win this fight, we are harnessing the power of personal stories and one-on-one conversations. 

One of our most powerful outreach tools is the Health Care Access Survey, a tool volunteer organizers are using in one-on-one outreach in communities across New York to guide conversations about people's personal health care experiences. 

On Saturday, September 23 we are organizing teams of volunteers to go door-to-door using the Health Care Access Survey to hear from members of our community about the challenges they face accessing healthcare. We would like to organize outreach canvassing events in every New York county. Sign up to be a Canvassing Team Leader on September 23!

 

To help you prepare, we recorded hosted a Zoom training. Here is the recording: 
Outreach Using the Health Access Survey Sept 14, 2017


What do we expect of Canvassing Team Leaders?

  • Choose a geographic area for outreach. We are encouraging outreach in areas where you would expect to engage with communities that face financial barriers to care -- working class communities, communities of color, immigrant communities. These are the communities largely missing from our movement. But since health care is an issue that impacts all of us, it's up to you to decide where you will canvass.
  • Recruit friends to join you. The Campaign for New York Health will share your event with health care justice activists in your area to also attend.
  • Plan to attend, bring materials, and welcome volunteers. The statewide Campaign for New York Health will make sure you have materials (surveys, scripts, flyers, and buttons) the day of your event. 

 

Once you register your event, a Campaign for New York Health organizer will followup with you to go over details and make arrangements for outreach materials. 

Thank you for helping to make this Statewide Day of Outreach a success! Questions? Contact ursula@nyhcampaign.org

    Southern Washington County Glens Falls Day of Outreach for New York Health

    We have an opportunity to help build grassroots support for Healthcare for All in New York in a Statewide Day of Outreach. We’ll be knocking on doors and having conversations with our “neighbors” to find out about their challenges in accessing healthcare. The canvass will take place in a Washington County village (probably Fort Edward, but possibly Argyle or Greenwich) I’ll try to announce the details by Sept. 16. Rather than trying to persuade people to support Single Payer, we’ll be listening, guided by a 3 page, field-tested questionnaire. The materials we’ll be using are at http://www.nyhcampaign.org/canvassing (We’ll have copies for you.) I predict that we’ll meet people eager to talk about their frustrations with our costly system that doesn’t work for so many of us. This is an important step in creating the broad movement we need to win! Plus it should be meaningful and interesting, and maybe even fun. Your RSVP is needed so we can make this a productive event. Call or email if you have questions of any sort.

Please be punctual. A train arrives at Patchogue station at 10:49, which would be the ideal one to catch.
