We had a wonderful gala on June 13, honoring champions dedicated to health justice. This year’s honorees included Martha Livingston,Ph.D., Senator Gustavo Rivera, and the Residency Program in Social Medicine at Montefiore. Just two weeks earlier, for the first time ever, the New York State Senate Health Committee held an official public hearing on the “New York Health Act” (NYHA), a bill to create a fully-public universal healthcare program covering all New York residents. It was ideal to celebrate this milestone with our guests and honorees - so many of whom helped contribute to this latest victory for our healthcare for all movement.

    Grassroots Leadership Training: Healthcare is a Right: Winning with the Power of Our Stories (Syracuse)

    Untitled_design_(2).png

    • Have you ever delayed going to the doctor or getting medication because of cost?
    • Ever stayed in a job because of the benefits?
    • Have you ever been discriminated against by your provider or insurance company because of your race, gender, or sexual orientation?
    • Do you worry about the cost of healthcare, now or in the future?
    • Do you believe healthcare should be guaranteed for everyone?

    The for-profit privatized healthcare system is hurting all of us — and it’s gone on far too long. In order to win healthcare for all, we must build a movement that includes everyone who stands to benefit from a transformation in the healthcare system. Our stories are our most powerful tool to fight for the right to healthcare and the many other changes our communities need.

    Join Physicians for a National Health Program NY Metro, the Workers' Center of Central New York, FACES, and Campaign for New York Health for this participatory workshop on how sharing our healthcare stories can help us be more effective advocates for universal healthcare and leaders for social change.

    During the training, participants will:

    • learn about and discuss the findings of the report Coverage to Care: A People’s Report on Healthcare in New York and the healthcare human rights principles
    • develop their story-based advocacy skills in order to be more effective leaders in the movement for universal healthcare
    • learn best practices for sharing personal healthcare stories and documenting stories in their communities and networks.  

    Through this training, we seek to develop the advocacy leadership of New Yorkers most impacted by inequities in healthcare by providing trainings on story-based advocacy and universal coverage principles. One million New Yorkers are uninsured and 50% of New Yorkers with insurance struggle to get the care they need. Women, people of color, immigrants, people with disabilities, the elderly, and LGTBQ people are disproportionately negatively impacted. The leadership of these constituencies is critical to achieving equitable healthcare access for all New York Yorkers. Please share this invitation with interested community members who are passionate about healthcare justice and social change! 

    Organized with support from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York. 

    Participants will receive a $20 gift certificate for their time sharing healthcare stories.
