June Organizing Meeting & Potluck for NY Health Act!


New York State is long overdue for public, affordable, and universal healthcare for comprehensive coverage for all. That includes all reproductive care! Join us for our monthly organizing meeting to strategize, participate in working groups, and build the movement for the NY Health Act to ensure healthcare for all without expensive premiums, deductibles, and copays and give people a real choice when it comes to their care. We'll get together on Monday, June 27th from 6 - 7:30 PM at the Riverbend Shelter in Genesee Valley Park. Bringing a dish or snack to pass is encouraged but not required; we want to see you either way! 

For those interested and able to participate in-person, we will be meeting at Genesee Valley Park. We will determine the specific shelter closer to the date and make sure you receive the updated details.

RSVP below!

For some 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 buildling power to make sure the NY Health Act comes to a vote and passes, and to ensure just implementation.

It is 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. Join us by attending our monthly organizing meeting! This is the heart of our efforts. After you RSVP, either our Organizing Director Mohini Sharma or a volunteer-leader will reach out to give you the Zoom information to join and onboard you 1on1.
