NY Health Act and Structural Racism (Part 2) - Shared screen with speaker view
Hi all! Please consider asking questions or making comments in the chat…
Like the case of Serena Williams, even a wealthy, famous woman being dismissed when complaining about a health problem.
would the NYHA mean that doctors at the NYC hospitals would need to treat anyone who wants to go?
I think so, as long as they have openings? This would be a good question to raise when Roona pauses.
And don’t show up at someone’s door and tell them how horrible things are in their community or racial group. People know that they have it rough.
I'm learning about Olinky's work. Part of what he says is by making sure your movement has qualified members of the community you're trying to reach. Not only for inclusion and what not, but because they have a different perspective on how the problem affects the general populace.Well...it's something close to that idea at lease
They are also really well mobilized around this!
I'd like to note that the Fruit Belt area in Buffalo is already really irritated with the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, and Ursula and I were once told it would be rough terrain there to get people involved because of the battle they're already fighting. I am no longer in Buffalo, but perhaps some tips on how to agitate to get involved despite the feelings there, or how to use that fuel of fire to get involved. Though I think the bigger fight there now is the city tryign to selloff the land the community land trust owns now.
hahaha, sorry, no mic.
Like June 4th and 5th
To add on, I reached out to the Capital District Black Chamber of COmmerce, and need to follow up, but they said they will ask the person who signs people up for healthcare if they will also ask people who come through to answer the Healthcare Access Survey.
ANd now i'll step back because I talk too much
Recently, one of the volunteer organizers from the Syracuse team attended an event about healthcare hosted by the NAACP, to learn and meet folks. Attending the local event and meeting the local organizers was a baby step on our path of relationship building.
and she made a good connection with the local organization chair. So we will be building on that connection.
That chat was made for you Sara!
Juneteenth is another good event to connect with people, there is opportunity for tabling and there's a variety of organizations there.
Thanks Ursula :) haha
Show up to others meetings and help out. THat's the first step
