A Victory in Combating Segregated Health Care in New York Hospitals

by Jenny Bright, Intern, Health Justice Program

On May 10, we continued our efforts to end segregated health care in New York Hospitals with a hearing before the New York State Assembly Health Committee, chaired by the Honorable Richard N. Gottfried.

The hearing was a major victory in our efforts!  60-70 people showed up to support our Health Equity Bill, A07699, sponsored by New York State Assemblymember Nelson Castro.  Members of the community and community group representatives provided compelling testimony.

Thank you, in particular, to those who helped and participated.  We look forward to continuing to make headway!
