The Final Stand Rally

We are launching strong advocacy and outreach countermeasures to SB-568 and HB-6423 with the help of fellow activist groups Health Choice 4 Action CT, CT Freedom Alliance and the new kid on the block, Connecticut Residents Against Medical Mandates, a group that has come on the scene with 13,000 members in 3 months!

Since March 2020, the CT Capitol Complex has been closed to the public. Legislators have been working virtually, ceasing all in-person engagement. They'll be there to do some business on Tuesday, but we're not allowed in.

Care to join our welcome wagon and line the block with families?

It's helpful to plan your parking ahead of time and have a back-up option. It is common to have to drive around the city to find parking, especially if you're looking for the closest on-street parking. Deep breath, you'll make it.
