“Activism itself can generate hope because it already constitutes an alternative and turns away from the corruption at the center to face the wild possibilities at the edges or at your side.” Rebecca Solnit, Hope in the Dark

Objectives:
1. Lay out the importance of hope and community to physical and mental wellbeing
2. Lay out the importance of universal access to quality health care and how a single payer system can accomplish that
3. Give overview of the NY Health Act and how close we are to passing a single payer bill in NY
4. Offer concrete ways people can connect to causes that matter to them and leverage activism as a path to health and wellness using our cause as an example

Workshop outline:
1. Introduction of facilitators and participants – name and cause that is important to you
2. Overview of the importance of hope and community to health – use interactive modalities to connect people to their own experience of hope and how it feels and offer research to support how health and hope and health and community are connected
3. Ten minute presentation on the NY Health Act and single payer system (can be done as a powerpoint) and short explanation of the community now active and inspired in Ulster county
4. How to get involved – we will offer people the opportunity to fill out cards or call their reps but also lay out some ways to get a community around you inspired to take action on the cause that matters most to them
