NYPAN Calendar – November 30, 2021


Our next big MPAN event!

Tired of an undemocratic Democratic Party beholden to bosses like Cuomo, and of an incompetent Director who fails to support the party nominees or critical pro-democracy ballot amendments?  

Then join us on Thursday, December 2nd at 7:00pm for a discussion of how to run for a position on the NYS Democratic State and County Committees, and Judicial Delegate from progressives who have actually done it! RSVP here

And remember to join the new MPAN Facebook Group!

We now have FIVE working groups!  More at NYHA@nypan.org

People2People Working Group – Contact Naomi Zewde, naomi@nypan.org. People2People is working on materials – with Labor for canvassing among union groups and materials for different regions of the state – and scheduling events, locations, groups, and phone banks to get the word out and build the movement. Sign up here for canvassing!

Research Working Group – Contact Steven Cecchini, stevenc@nypan.org. Research continues to look for information to assist Electoral with power mapping our senators, to create county tax savings numbers, and to help create forceful flyers.

Labor Working Group – Contact Jeff Mikkelson, jeff@nypan.org. Labor is developing strategies and outreach materials to amplify existing support for and overcome lingering opposition to the NY Health Act among labor unions, focusing on the large public sector unions that wield significant influence over Democratic leadership and the legislative process.

Electoral Working Group – Contact Ting Barrow, tingb@nypan.org. Electoral has begun the process of power mapping every one of our state senators, and is bent on finding the levers that will move them to #PassNYHealth as well as a strategy to use those levers with other organizations during the next session.

Medical Professionals Working Group – Contact Donald Gardner, donald@gardnerproject.com. This new working group will work on building support among medical professionals, in particular in organizations.

And Phone Banking! – Erl Kimmich of GANY, erlendkimmich@gmail.com, is leading a phone bank on Sundays calling Our Revolution #s in New York City (and potentially elsewhere) about the Health Act. Jump on – it’s easy using their script and dialer – and VERY useful!
