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.

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.
