The campaign for single-payer healthcare is on a roll, locally and nationally! Last month, years of hard work by our movement paved the way to elect dozens of state Senators and U.S. Congresspeople nationwide committed to this issue. A solid majority of the incoming New York State Senate has expressed support for the New York Health Act. The New York City Council is poised to pass a resolution supporting the bill, following last Thursday's hugely successful rally of 150 people and testimony by 50+ advocates. Fearing our success, the powerful insurance industry and their allies are deploying their enormous wealth to wage a counter-campaign of fear-mongering and lies to stop our movement.
Join us for a lively discussion of the gains we've made and the strategy to defeat the profiteers and move forward toward victory. You'll hear about the campaigns underway to organize physicians, med students, small businesses, communities of color and immigrants, and our plans for grassroots education, canvassing, media work, and direct action to inform and organize many sectors of the public around the state.
We also want to hear your thoughts on strategy, creative ideas, and commitments to join the work.
Help spread the word on Facebook.
