    Share Your Healthcare Story

    In the face of the ongoing public health crisis, we must keep organizing for the healthcare we need.

    A central piece of the Campaign for NY Health strategy to win healthcare for all is uplifting the voices and leadership of New Yorkers who have been hurt by the existing pay-or-die healthcare system. Please share your healthcare story, and we will followup with you about ways to be more involved in the fight for guaranteed universal healthcare.

    • Did you or a loved get COVID? What happened? 
    • Has there been a time when you or a loved one needed healthcare but weren’t able to get it? Why? What happened? 
    • Are you a healthcare worker who has seen patients delay care due to cost or insurance barriers?  
    • Are you concerned about losing your union health benefits due to job loss or privatization?
    • Have you lost a job that provided you or your family with insurance coverage? 
    • Are you struggling with the high cost of medical bills or medical debt?

    Thank you for being part of the movement to win healthcare for all.

    I signed up to volunteer for the Campaign for New York Health to bring universal healthcare to NYS. Join me!

    Build the movement to WIN guaranteed healthcare for all of us!

    We are at a critical point in the campaign for the NY Health Act – universal, guaranteed healthcare!

    Healthcare costs are hurting everyone as more and more people struggle to get the care they need. This pandemic is affecting people in many different ways. In the face of this crisis, we must keep organizing for the healthcare we need. 

    The NY Health Act is the only plan that will cover everyone and guarantee high quality coverage – including long-term care – at a price we can all afford. To learn more about the NY Health Act, visit

    While the opposition is powerful, we have the people on our side. That's why we need you to pledge to build the movement in New York State at this critical time. We can do this!
