In the middle of the deadliest pandemic in recent history, private health insurance corporations are making record profits, while tens of thousands of New Yorkers die, lose income, can’t afford rent, and struggle to pay unaffordable medical bills. The COVID-19 pandemic puts everyone at risk, but Black, Brown, and low-income New Yorkers carry the greatest burden of exposure as essential workers and the least access to quality healthcare when we do get sick. We need a just recovery from this pandemic, and that means truly universal, guaranteed healthcare.
On Wed. January 27, join the Campaign for New York Health for the largest ever day of action for universal healthcare. We will call, email, and tweet New York State lawmakers and urge the new Democratic supermajority to make passing the New York Health Act a priority in 2021.
RSVP below to let us know you will join in the action on Wed. January 27! You will receive, closer to the day of action, a toolkit and resources to recruit your friends and network to join in the day of action.
The New York Health Act will provide comprehensive, health coverage for everyone who lives or works full-time in New York. You and your healthcare provider of choice will work to keep you healthy—New York Health pays the bill. You will never have to fear going without coverage again -- especially in the middle of a public health crisis.
Together, we can make guaranteed healthcare a reality in New York. See you Wed. January 27! #PassNYHealth
