The Home Care Crisis and Your Tax Dollars

Friday, November 20th, 2009

During the recent annual conference of the New York Association of Health Care Providers in Albany, 1199 SEIU sent a Guerrilla Billboards mobile billboard truck to highlight the organization’s recently launched public awareness campaign.  Despite the billions of taxpayer dollars spent annually, large sums are reportedly wasted due to inefficiencies, which results in sub-par patient care.

During the course of the campaign, the billboard truck looped around downtown Albany, past the hotel where the conference was being held, as well as the nearby state office buildings.  The billboard truck also supported the efforts of 1199SEIU staffers who were on location to help promote the informational website HomeCareCrisis

Omni Nursing Home Crisis - Family Day Rally in Jersey City

Omni Nursing Home Crisis - Family Day Rally in Jersey City

Whether leading 200 participants in the annual Scituate, MA St. Patrick’s Day Parade, or several thousand 1199 SEIU marchers rallying for better pay in Jersey City, NJ, Guerrilla Billboards has been there to help.

 

During the recent Family Day Rally in Jersey City, NJ, one of our mobile billboard trucks led a very large contingent of marchers who came from all over the New York City region to support their colleagues seeking better pay at a chain of local nursing homes.  For several days previous, the billboard truck had been driving throughout the local area helping to create community awareness of the upcoming rally, and directed interested passerby to a dedicated website page for more details.  On the morning of the rally, the billboard truck took up a position behind two Jersey City Police Department cruisers escorting the rally, and led several thousand marchers through historic Journal Square to the National Guard Armory where the Family Day festivities were held.
