SACSS advocates with partners for healthcare access in the #Coverage4All campaign launch in NY
On February 14, SACSS, Make the Road New York, Health Care For All New York (HCFANY), and many other partners and community members joined together to advocate for the important #Coverage4ALL Campaign launch, which took place in front of NYS Governor Kathy Hochul’s office in Manhattan.
SACSS Health Services Program Manager, Maria Ariza made a powerful call to NYS representatives to work harder to ensure that Coverage4All becomes a reality for all New Yorkers, including so many members of the immigrant populations, seniors, and others that currently face great challenges accessing comprehensive healthcare.
For more, please watch the video documenting the event with the poignant points Maria makes at the rally [see minute 56 of this video documenting the event, taken and posted by Make the Road NY).
In a follow up to this campaign launch, the #Coverage4All and Health Care for All NY campaigns and Medicaid Matters are holding a webinar on February 17th from 1-2pm to inform partners and community members about how a revised Section 1332 Waiver could help New York provide health coverage to income-eligible New Yorkers, regardless of immigration status or age. The event organizers will also present action steps that advocates can take to encourage NYS representatives and NYS Governor Hochul to update the waiver request.
