New York Health Act Day of Action in Albany
June 5, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Please join us in Albany for the annual statewide lobby day to advocate for the New York Health Act – the bill to guarantee healthcare to ALL New Yorkers (like Medicare-for-all for New York State!) The New York Health Act passed the Assembly in 2015, 2016, and 2017 with huge majority support. We need to pass it in the Assembly again this year and keep pushing the Senate to get this to the Governor’s desk to make health care equality a reality for New Yorkers.
Please register by May 29th! Register at this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeJ56VFa9g5sXmLrFFL_ErCR8TGJLJ-7OAD83cdq2Opma5eIQ/viewform
Because we expect to have hundreds of participants rallying for the New York Health Act, we cannot guarantee that everyone will have a meeting with their elected official since seats are limited in meetings. But we promise that you will be plugged into important work and that you are needed to send a strong message to Albany legislators that New Yorkers want the NY Health Act!

9:30am – Registration, Coffee and Bagels (Albany Capital Center 55 Eagle St, Albany, NY 12207)
