The fight for Fair Pay for Home Care will be heating up this fall as the Governor prepares his version of the budget. Join us for this virtual training on direct action to learn how we can escalate pressure on the governor and other state legislators to include Fair Pay in the NYS budget.
We will be joined by direct action expert, Jennifer Flynn Walker. Jennifer is the Senior Director of Mobilization and Advocacy at the Center for Popular Democracy, one of the leading national social justice organizations in the country.
Jennifer is the former executive director of VOCAL-NY (previously NYC AIDS Housing Network), where she organized around welfare rights, homelessness, drug user rights, and immigration, winning campaigns that resulted in a progressive right to housing legislation and over $30 million in funding to build housing.
Prior to VOCAL-NY, she served as the managing director of Health GAP (Global Access Project), an international AIDS advocacy organization that led campaigns resulting in over $50 billion for AIDS treatment.
Jennifer will share her experience developing direct action strategy for winning campaigns! We will discuss and strategize around how we can apply our learnings from Jennifer's training to the Fair Pay for Home Care campaign.
