Hundreds of you our friends, partners, supporters and fellow freedom fighters joined together in downtown Hartford…so many familiar faces, so many well-wishers…too many to name.

Thank you!

The event was a success! And the credit goes to each and every one of you who participated.

With our co-sponsor, Women’s March-CT, we met at Hartford City Hall marched to Vernon and Broad for that great #Take-A-Knee In and to such an inspirational Rally for #RacialJustice.

Special thanks to the #PuertoRican Hurricane Relief Network!

One thought on “Thank You #CTR4RJ

  1. Connecticut needs to protest Gov. Malloy’s attack on the poor with his new budget bill that begins January 1, 2018 which will make numerous cuts to Medicaid as well as the Medicare Advantage Savings Program. This will hurt seniors, the poor, the disabled, and of course many in the African American community which the governor clearly doesn’t care about. I think that Rev. Al Sharpton should be contact and a huge Black Lives Matter protest needs to be done to force Governor Malloy to reverse this racist, hateful attack on the poor. We need a government that works for everyone not just those at the top. Why isn’t the governor going after the wealthy big business instead? Of course these overpaid white CEO’s get away with everything, now the state needs money and they want to take away what little the poor have left. The people of Connecticut must demand social justice!
