We’re still riding the high from last week’s Supreme Court decision to uphold the ACA. As we wrap up this Monday, we’re still getting photos and video in from the many events that HCFANY co-hosted around the state. What a great party!
The NYC rally was held in Foley Square in lower Manhattan and boasted an all-star lineup of speakers including Senator Tom Duane (pictured above), NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn, Assembly Member Richard Gottdfried, and Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, to name just a few.
We also had regular folks like you and me come up and tell their stories of how the ACA has helped (or will help) them. Check out the video below of Adrew Telzak from Queens, telling his story of how he was able to keep his insurance thanks to the ACA:
The 90 degree heat did not deter a large crowd from gathering, nor did it keep the press from coming out in droves. Anybody watching the evening news would have seen clips of us speaking out in support of the Affordable Care Act. It was such a great time!
