Can we pass single payer in Albany this year? Round Table on the New York Health Campaign


Pass_NYH.gifThe May installment of our monthly forum will be a roundtable discussion on the progress of the New York Health campaign: the campaign to bring universal single-payer health care to New York State. The number of endorsements has ballooned in recent months.  

How did we get here, and what obstacles do we face moving forward? What lessons can we learn from the 1992 campaign, the last time the bill was able to pass the Assembly?

Come join the conversation with advocates who have been pushing this campaign.
