2022 Virtual Lobby Day for Healthcare Workers, Residents, and Students
Tuesday, May 3rd on Zoom
We are excited to invite you to our annual lobby day for healthcare workers and students, which will take place on Tuesday, May 3rd. This year, the legislature has heard demands from many different groups in the health justice movement - we continue to be inspired by the growing strength of this movement! While health is a major focus, we need to keep up the pressure to impress upon legislators in Albany just how essential it is to pass the New York Health Act and other legislation that would improve the lives of so many New Yorkers.
To join us, please RSVP here.
Our 2022 Virtual Lobby Day Goals:
✅ Pressure existing co-sponsors to be more active in their support of the NY Health Act (A6058/S5474), and meeting with encouraging skeptical legislators to address their concerns make them supporters
✅ Promote the End Medical Debt package of bills organized by the Community Service Society to help protect patients from predatory billing
✅ Engage and empower the healthcare community to participate in lobbying efforts with their legislators
We have a short series of events leading up to Lobby Day to help us build power and momentum. Feel free to join any or all of them!
🌟 Our virtual April educational forum on Tuesday, April 19 will share more information about both the NY Health Act and the End Medical Debt Campaign. Sign up here.
🌟 Stories are often the heart of our advocacy. To that end, we are hosting a 2-part storytelling training for healthcare workers on Saturday, April 23 and Sunday, April 24 - if you’d like to hone your storytelling skills, apply for the training here.
🌟 We will be hosting a Lobby Skills training on Sunday, May 1st, to support participants to go into their lobby visits as prepared and powerful as possible. To participate, indicate your interest on the Lobby Day RSVP form here.
