Campaign for New York Health-2017 Lobby Day and Rally
April 4, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm CEST
Start making plans to join this year’s Statewide Day of Action for Healthcare for All on Tuesday April 4 in Albany!
We need your help to make this the BIGGEST statewide day of action for universal healthcare the Capital has ever seen. In addition to RSVPing, please invite organizations you are a part of to endorse! We’ll start the day with a New York Health info session, followed by a HUGE rally in West Capital Park, followed by visits to legislators. It’s important that you RSVP early to help the planning committee know the transportation needs from around the state.
WHY do we say thing this will be the biggest healthcare rally Albany has EVER seen? Public support for universal healthcare continues to rise — thanks to the efforts of grassroots healthcare activists (like you!) and our amazing allies in this struggle like labor, progressive healthcare providers, small-business owners, and faith communities.
A recent article in The Atlantic highlights the findings of the most recent Pew healthcare poll: support for a universal, publicly administered healthcare program, Medicare-for-all, is at 60%, the highest it’s been in over decade!
The movement for healthcare as a human right is growing — and on April 4, let’s bring that movement to the Capital! Please RSVP to let us know you will join the Statewide Day of Action for Healthcare for All on April 4. Please indicate on the RSVP form whether you can volunteer to help with outreach so that we can truly make this the biggest healthcare rally Albany has ever seen.
Donate to make April 4th a success! The Campaign for New York Health is people powered and we want to make sure that activists from across the state can join us in Albany. Please give what you can.
Even though we are collecting official RSVPs via the Campaign for New York Health website, we’d LOVE for you to create a buzz about April 4 by spreading the word to your networks via Facebook – here’s the event page on the Campaign for New York Health Facebook page
