Rallies will advocate for a special legislative session to pass the Reproductive Health Act and the NY Health Act.
The Kesten Campaign announced on August 20 two healthcare rallies leading up to the September 13th Democratic primary. The rallies, focusing on reproductive healthcare and single-payer healthcare, will be held on August 26th and September 6th, respectively.
The purpose of the rallies is to insist that Governor Cuomo call a special legislative session of the NYS Senate in order to pass both the Reproductive Health Act and the NY Health Act. Both pieces of legislation have passed in the NYS Assembly, but have not been brought to a vote in the NYS Senate.
