    Before the COVID pandemic, we were seeing patients needlessly suffering–unable to pay for medications, tests, and doctor visits, delaying treatment, and failing to address treatable illnesses. Now during this unprecedented public healthcare crisis, we are witnessing the consequences of the fragmented and unequal system of care: Black and immigrant communities are seeing the highest rates of death from COVID, millions of people are losing their employer-sponsored health plan just when they will need it most, and under-insurance continues to be a problem, especially for mental healthcare, dental care, and home care. And yet private insurance companies are posting record profits. We cannot remain quiet while the current health insurance system causes millions of New Yorkers to struggle with preventable illness and death.

    We must build back betterWe urge you to support the New York Health Act and replace private insurance with comprehensive, universal healthcare for every New Yorker.

    RSVP to join the event via Zoom

    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. To have your group endorse, contact Marianna ([email protected]).

    Speakers list coming soon.

    Have you been wondering, What can I do to help make universal healthcare a reality in New York? How can I help #PassNYHealth? 

    The goal of this phonebanking campaign is to make sure legislators are hearing from people they represent about support for the New York Health Act. Through our calls, we will talk with New York Health Act supporters and help them take action to help pass the bill – by calling their legislators, inviting them to share their healthcare stories and to join in upcoming volunteer and action opportunities.  

    No experience necessary! During each phonebanking session there will be a training opportunity for new volunteers. 

    Thank you for doing this critical work! Together we can build the movement needed to win the right to healthcare for all of us.
