New York Health Grassroots Volunteer Orientation Call

Join this call to learn about our campaign's strategy to build a movement strong enough to win healthcare as a human right in New York State. We'll go over the history of the New York Health Act, how it connects to the current national struggle around healthcare, and the various organizing tools and resources available for organizing in your community.
