Health Care is a Human Right Base Building Canvassing Training
August 26, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Winning universal health care will require a broad and diverse movement of New Yorkers coming together to demand health care as a human right. How do we build a movement that can win?
One-on-one conversations are a critical organizing practice that engages people in real dialogue and invites them to join our collective work. The Campaign for New York Health is preparing teams of volunteer organizers to have one-on-one conversations and collect health care stories in communities across New York.
At this training, we will go over the tools that can help us fight back, to win the right to health care — and so much more — by organizing in our communities.
The first part of the training will review concepts important to organizing and an introduction to the powerful outreach tools the statewide Campaign for NY Health is using.
For the second half of the training, we will hit the streets to practice!
After completing this training, participants will:
– Have a basic understanding of the following concepts: base-building, organizing, and why one on one conversations and listening are critical step to movement building.
– feel comfortable using the Health Care Access Survey to have one-on-one healthcare conversations
– Be ready to lead a canvassing group using the Base Building survey tools!
The New York Health Act, the bill to guarantee health care to all New Yorkers, passed the NY State Assembly for the third consecutive year in 2017. In 2018, we plan to #PassNYHealth in the State Senate. Join the fight!
