Nurses, patients, & neighbors
Unite to Save LICH!
Hundreds of caregivers, neighbors,
and elected officials are building
a powerful mass movement to save LICH!
The SUNY Board of Trustees took an illegal and
improper vote to close LICH. The good news: We were
there in force — chanting, singing, and telling our stories.
They snuck out the back door of their own meeting —
without adjourning. Since they abandoned their official
duties, we took matters into our own hands — and voted
unanimously to rescind their decision!
We can and will save LICH! Governor Cuomo and
the Health Dept. can step in any time to save LICH.
We’re building the movement to make them. Join us!
