    Social Justice Advocacy Day

    Date: Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at 10:30 AM

    Location: Legislative Office Building in Hartford, CT

    Join Healthy and Just CT for our Social Justice Advocacy Day on Wednesday, May 29 from 10:30 am - 1:00 pm! During our Advocacy Day, groups from around the state will be speaking on their community issues, legislative priorities and upcoming events. Networking for attendees and participating groups is encouraged during the last half-hour of the Advocacy Day.

    Healthy and Just CT is a coalition of Connecticut-based action groups working to coordinate and support the criminal justice reform field in Connecticut. The coalition works at the intersection of healthcare reform and criminal justice reform to address the systemic problems families and communities are facing. Convened by the Katal Center for Health, Equity, and Justice, the coalition will strengthen the field of organizing and advocacy by helping groups and allies take collective action. It is a multiracial formation with broad array of participants with a variety of views and experiences. Our three guiding goals are to:

    • Strengthen the field of criminal justice reform by facilitating intersectional collaborations;
    • Identify and discuss resources for collective action on criminal justice reform;
    • Coordinate work that increases the role and leadership of people directly impacted.
