April's monthly organizing meeting will be a unique one! To prepare for a day of action in Albany the following the day, we will make phonecalls to make sure those coming to Albany know all the details, and paint signs for the rally in Albany! We must have a strong grassroots showing in Albany to move the NY Health Act closer to passing by June; even if you can't come to Albany with us the next day, coming to meet everyone, make phone calls, and paint signs is still a big help. We'll be ordering pizza, and beverages will also be provided. Please RSVP below!
For background: Metro Justice is a founding member of the Campaign for New York Health: a statewide movement to pass the New York Health Act so that we have universal, public health care in New York State. No more premiums; no more co-pays; no more deductibles. Health care is a human right.
Thanks to 6 years of organizing by everyday people across NYS, we reached a milestone towards victory in March 2021. The Campaign for New York Health and primary sponsors of the NY Health Act -- Assembly Member Richard Gottfried and Senator Gustavo Rivera -- introduced the NY Health Act with MAJORITY SUPPORT in BOTH the NYS Assembly and Senate for the first time ever.
We congratulate all of our members that kept us in the fight for the years it took to reach this milestone. We thank our entire local Democratic delegation to the NYS Legislature for listening to their constituents and co-sponsoring the NY Health Act, which has been a lynch-pin in this fight. We also know the fight for universal healthcare is far from over. We need to continue building power to make sure the NY Health Act comes to a vote and passes, and to ensure just implementation.
It is the power of the people that got us here, and it will be the power of the people that push the NY Health Act over the finish line.
Please remember to RSVP below.
