Please join us for a presentation on the upcoming ways to plug into the chapter’s work toward single payer at both the state and federal levels. We will have short presentations by four working groups and information on how to contribute to the efforts -- whether or not you have time for monthly meetings. There will also be time at the end for questions.
You will hear presentations from and have a chance to join these action groups:
- New York Health Act Advocacy: Plans for PNHP-NY Metro’s continuing support, education and organizing for this vital single-payer bill into 2022.
- Healthcare Worker Outreach: Bringing more healthcare and public health professionals into the single-payer movement continues to be a primary focus of the chapter.
- National Issues Organizing: An update on what’s happening and what we can do about healthcare access nationally, from Direct Contracting Entities (an under-the-radar Medicare privatization scheme) to the Medicare expansion provisions of the “reconciliation” bill in Congress. Also, the latest on how retirees and doctors are pushing back against NYC’s attempts to privatize Medicare through the misnamed “Medicare Advantage” program.
- Anti-Racism Work: We continue our work to make our chapter a more inclusive space, with both internal projects and an enhanced commitment to coalition-building in the movement.
