    Labor Day March

    It's important to celebrate the achievements of the labor movement each year on labor day. For many, this involves a summer barbecue with a flavorful black bean burger or juicy bratwurst. This year, we invite you to celebrate with Metro Justice and the Campaign for New York Health before your barbecue! Line up will be at 8:30 AM at East Avenue & Alexander Street.

    Join us in the Rochester Labor Day parade to spread awareness for the New York Health Act and push Congressman Morelle to cosponsor Medicare for All in the House. With the New York Health Act, we want to create a world in which everyone has the comprehensive, preventative and acute care they need regardless of immigration status, and without paying expensive premiums, co-pays, and deductibles. Your care decisions should be between you and your care provider, not decided by what your insurance will or will not cover for its own profit.

    Health care is a human right, and you can help make that vision a reality this Labor Day.

     

    What: Labor Day Parade

    When: 8:30 AM on Monday, September 2nd

    Where: Intersection of East Ave. and Alexander St.

    Why: Because you can make a difference in the lives of your fellow community members!

    "Effective Follow Up" Training with Rochester for NY Health

    Join us for an organizing training to base build for Rochester for NY Health. Rochester for NY Health is a committee of Metro Justice, and the Rochester chapter of the statewide Campaign for NY Health. We aim to win the New York Health Act so that health care becomes a human right in New York State.

    When we organize, we win! This training will cover one of the most important components of building an effective and sustainable movement to win health care for all: Follow-Up! Consistent communication and engagement gets the job done. 

    The training will cover effective follow up strategies for getting future attendance commitments, effective one-on-one conversations that move people to action and assigning good leadership development tasks.

    Even though we will be focusing on the context of health care, this method can be adapted to any campaign. So, if you are a part of other social justice groups, come through and take back what you learn to your other efforts!

    If you need child care, please send us a message and we will figure out making child care available.

    Please RSVP below!
