1199ers Travel To Albany To Advocate For The Passage Of The New York Health Act

June 7, 2018

Hundreds of healthcare advocates, including more than 136 members of 1199, came together at the Capitol in Albany on Tuesday, June 5 to tell lawmakers that health care is a right—not a privilege! 1199 members spoke with legislators and urged passage of the New York Health Act, the bill that would provide universal health care to ALL New Yorkers (like Medicare-for-all for New York State.) They also participated in a rally at West Capitol Park, right outside the legislative chambers.
