On May 18th, join community groups, health advocates, and State Senator Rachel May for a virtual Central New York Healthcare Town Hall to discuss the urgency of passing the New York Health Act as part of our state’s pandemic recovery. By establishing a universal healthcare system, the New York Health Act will address the structural roots of healthcare inequity by establishing a system that make care a right guaranteed for every New Yorkers regardless age, wealth, place of employment, or immigration status.
The New York Health Act has majority support in both the state Assembly and State Senate. We have until June 10 to pass the Health Act. During this event, we will hear how guaranteed healthcare is a critical racial justice and economic justice struggle and we will take collective acton to call on state legislative leaders to make passing the New York Health Act a priority in 2021.
Current sponsors of this event include: ARISE, Campaign for New York Health, CNY Solidarity Coalition, Doula 4 a Queen New York Immigration Coalition, Workers' Center of Central New York, Students for a National Health Program SUNY Upstate, Syracuse Chapter Democratic Socialists of America.
