Dance Artists’ National Collective, in partnership with Dance/NYC, Abrons Arts Center, and League of Independent Theater hosts town hall for arts and dance workers to learn more about the New York Health Act.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the fragility of the healthcare system and the lack of a safety net for most arts workers. The New York Health Act (NYHA)—this state’s version of “Medicare for All”— is a single-payer healthcare that would measurably improve the lives of arts workers.  Dance Artists’ National Collective, in partnership with Dance/NYC, Abrons Arts Center, and League of Independent Theater, host a town hall for arts and dance workers to learn more about the NYHA. Follow the campaign with the hashtag: #PassNYHealth.

ASL interpretation and closed captioning will be provided for this event.
