Call-In Day for New York Health – Friday, June 2, 2017
June 2, 2017
On Friday June 2, we are FLOODING State Senate offices with calls in support of New York Health, ESPECIALLY in districts where the Senator is not yet a cosponsor of the New York Health Act.
See the bill sponsors here. You can look up your own Senator here or dial the NYS Senate Switchboard at (518) 455-2800. You will be asked to give your zip code and the operator will connect you to your Senator’s office.
Here is a sample script:
Hi, my name is ______ and I am a constituent. I urge the Senator to co-sponsor the NY Health Act S4840 to save New York billions of dollars and to save thousands of lives. Tell them to stand up for healthcare as a human right. Thank you. (you can also add why this issue is important to you personally.)
If your Senator is already a cosponsor, please say THANK YOU and ask that they promote the bill to their Republican Senate colleagues.
Please share anything you learn about your Senator’s position here: https://goo.gl/forms/BUtzZnNvia1UOY6P2
If Congress has its way and passes the AHCA, 2.7 million New Yorkers would lose their health coverage. It’s critical that New York State take action to protect New Yorkers.
