Supporting the ANA-NY PAC

ANA-NY Political Action Committee

American Nurses Association - New York Political Action Committee

Registered nurses (RNs) around the state lead every day — from working on the front lines caring for patients to mentoring the next generation of RNs.  Now, more than ever, RNs must lead the way to evolve structures, processes, and outcomes to improve health care and achieve health equity.  We need to support New York State legislators and candidates who advocate for registered nurses, the nursing profession, and the legislative priorities of the American Nurses Association-New York (ANA-NY).

To accomplish this, the American Nurses Association-New York Political Action Committee (ANA-NY PAC) needs your help. The ANA-NY PAC’s sole purpose is to raise funds to support state legislators and candidates seeking elected office, who champion the nursing profession. It is important to have state elected officials who understand the nursing profession and the essential role RNs play in healthcare.

There are ongoing issues confronting the nursing profession: safe staffing, working to reduce workplace violence, bullying, harassment, burnout, compassion fatigue, continuing education, removing artificial barriers to practice while ensuring RNs achieve higher levels of health to name a few. 

ANA-NY’s President, Dr. Marilyn Dollinger, RN, has stated that her vision is for RNs to move from the “most trusted” to “most influential.” In order to achieve this vision, we are asking all ANA-NY members to make a donation to ANA-NY PAC. Ideally, we would love to see each member make a donation of $10 for every year you have been an RN. If all members do this, it will enable us to have a robust and effective PAC that will help us support candidates and legislators who support our profession.

The PAC goal is to achieve 100% participation from our over 8,700 members in ANA-NY.
We are asking ANA-NY members to donate $10 for every year you have been a RN.
Your ANA-NY PAC donation is not tax-deductible, must be in your name (not in memory or in honor of another person), will be public record, and the contribution cannot be reimbursed by your employer.
