Join the Health Care for All Town Hall on Staten Island!
Saturday, May 20th, 12:00PM - 3:00PM
Port Richmond High School, 85 St Josephs Ave, Staten Island, NY 10302
As members of Congress vote to take away health care, New York State can protect New Yorkers by implementing a universal, publicly financed health care that guarantees health care to all. The New York Health Act—our state universal health care bill (A4738/S4840)—has passed the Assembly in 2015 and 2016, and has more support than ever in the New York State State Senate.
Join the discussion with health care experts and elected officials to hear how a universal health care system—a program like Medicare for all New Yorkers—could work for you. All are welcome!
