Now is the Time! Healthcare for All.
Guest Speaker Dr. Oli Fein, Chair, PNHP NY Metro Chapter.
Have you ever delayed going to the doctor or getting medication because of cost?
Ever stayed in a job because of the benefits?
Have you ever been discriminated against by your provider or insurance company because of your race, gender, or sexual orientation?
Do you worry about the cost of healthcare, now or in the future?
Do you believe healthcare should be guaranteed for everyone?
The for-profit privatized healthcare system is hurting all of us — and it’s gone on far too long. In order to win healthcare for all, we must build a movement that includes everyone who stands to benefit from a transformation in the healthcare system. Our stories are our most powerful tool to fight for the right to healthcare and the many other changes our communities need!
Join the Campaign for New York Health, Citizen Action of New York, and Indivisible Mohawk Valley for a participatory workshop on how sharing our healthcare stories can help us be more effective advocates for universal healthcare and leaders for social change.
During the training, participants will:
- learn about and discuss the findings of the report Coverage to Care: A People’s Report on Healthcare in New York and the healthcare human rights principles
- develop their story-based advocacy skills in order to be more effective leaders in the movement for universal healthcare
- learn best practices for sharing personal healthcare stories and documenting stories in their communities and networks.
Through this training, we seek to develop the advocacy leadership of New Yorkers most impacted by inequities in healthcare by providing trainings on story-based advocacy and universal coverage principles. One million New Yorkers are uninsured and 50% of New Yorkers with insurance struggle to get the care they need. Women, people of color, immigrants, people with disabilities, and LGTBQ people are disproportionately negatively impacted. The leadership of these constituencies is critical to achieving equitable healthcare access for all New York Yorkers. Please share this invitation with interested community members who are passionate about healthcare justice and social change!
