Training: Storytelling to Win Health Care for All
Over a million New Yorkers lack healthcare coverage and even those with insurance struggle to access care because of unpredictable and high out-of-pocket costs. The Campaign for New York Health is built around the belief that healthcare is a human right, not a privilege for the wealthy alone.
Join us for a special Webinar “Storytelling to Win Health Care for All” where we'll share about how collecting and sharing health care stories is a necessary piece to building a movement to pass the New York Health Act and guarantee health care for all. By sharing our stories, we can expose how the current system creates unnecessary stress and misery--for patients, doctors, nurses, and business owners alike and build a movement to demand a humane and democratic health care system,

This training will cover basic concepts for understanding how stories fit into political organizing and introduce a framework for developing our own personal stories as a tool for mobilizing our communities based on the Public Narrative theory of Marshall Ganz who trained the United Farmworkers and the Obama 2008 campaign.
We will also review two of the tools available to documenting and sharing health care stories in communities throughout the state, the Health Access Survey (face to face and online via social media) and Onstack, a social media video tool you can use from your smartphone.
David Ambrose, co-founder of Onstack.org, a social video platform designed to connect people through personal stories about the issues impacting their lives.
