Call-In Day for New York Health
January 20, 2017
I’m reaching out today to invite you and the Single Payer New York to participate in a Statewide Call-In Day on Friday January 27 from 9 AM t0 9 PM to the New York State Senate in support of the New York Health Act, the bill to guarantee universal, public healthcare to all New Yorkers. As you recall, the NYS Assembly passed the New York Health Act in 2015 and 2016. There 21 Senators who have cosponsored New York Health and in the coming year, we are working on building grassroots support for the bill throughout key State Senators. We are inviting all organizations who have endorsed New York Health to join us to flood Senator’s offices with phone calls on Friday, January 27. We are also compiling resources for a Twitterstorm, and would love to have you share those, too.
In the lead up to the Call-In Day, the Campaign for New York Health can send you phone numbers to Senators we are targeting, a sample script, links to social media, and sample tweets – we are asking folks to call their own Senators and also IDC leader Jeff Klein.
Please let me know if Single Payer New York will participate in the Call-In Day on January 27. We would ask that you share information about the day of action to your membership via email, Facebook, Twitter, on your website, and at upcoming meetings. Grassroots New York Health supports are already committing to call State Senators on that day and having endorsing organizations participate will really amplify the message of the day — that healthcare is a human rightand that regardless what happens in Congress, the State Senators must take action to guarantee healthcare for all New Yorkers by sponsoring New York Health.
We’ll do my best to make it easy for you to participate and welcome any feedback or suggestion you may have to make the Call-In Day a success. Thank you!
