Join the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival

Long Island Truth Commission on Poverty

When: Tuesday, September 12, 4:00pm – 9:00pm (EDT)

Where: Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Church, 1434 Straight Path, Wyandanch, New York 11798, USA

Despite New York’s great wealth, more than 3 million New Yorkers live below the federal poverty line, and millions more struggle to make ends meet. On Long Island, 35 percent of households earn less than the cost of living. Low-income Long Islanders face challenges accessing child care, healthcare, transportation, housing, healthy food, education and living wage jobs. People of all races and genders are impacted, but women and people of color disproportionately bear the load. Why is this? How are individuals, families and our community impacted, and what is being done to respond? How can we create a more just community in which all our neighbors can thrive?

Join us on Tuesday, September 12, to hear people directly impacted by poverty and related injustices, direct service providers, advocates, faith leaders, and policy experts reflect on these questions. To attend, RSVP here. (Due to time constraints, we may not be able to accommodate all requests to testify in person on Sept. 12.) If you prefer to submit written testimony, you can do so by emailing emcneill@labor-religion.org. We are looking for testimony from directly impacted people, direct service providers, advocates, faith or other community leaders, and academics or other experts. This event is part of the Truth Commission on Poverty in New York State being held across New York in 2017 and is part of a national Truth Commission on the Right Not to Be Poor, organized as part of the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival.

GOVERNOR CUOMO ANNOUNCES SERIES OF EXPERT PANELS ON THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE IN NEW YORK UNDER THE WASHINGTON HEALTH CARE PLANS

GOVERNOR CUOMO ANNOUNCES SERIES OF EXPERT PANELS ON THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE IN NEW YORK UNDER THE WASHINGTON HEALTH CARE PLANS

 

For Immediate Release: 6/22/2017 GOVERNOR ANDREW M. CUOMO

 

State of New York | Executive Chamber
Andrew M. Cuomo | Governor
GOVERNOR CUOMO ANNOUNCES SERIES OF EXPERT PANELS ON THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE IN NEW YORK UNDER THE WASHINGTON HEALTH CARE PLANS
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced a series of expert panels and community roundtables about how the Washington health care plans could affect health care in New York State. The panels, which will be held across the state in late June, will feature Cuomo administration officials and experts and will encourage New Yorkers to understand what is at stake and how to best protect their families from upcoming changes to our health care system. Read the Governor’s statement on the Senate health care bill here.

“With the Senate introducing their ultra-conservative and devastating health care bill today, we want to make sure people know the facts from experts and community members about how exactly this legislation will affect the future of health care in New York,” Governor Cuomo said. “These plans will strip coverage from millions of New Yorkers and devastate our health care system, and while Congress has demonstrated an appalling lack of transparency and accountability to Americans, we are stepping up to provide New Yorkers with the facts about their health and lives.”

According to the latest estimates, the House American Health Care Act, if enacted, would put 2.7 million New Yorkers at risk of losing their health insurance and would include $7 billion in cuts from New York’s health care system over the next four years.
