Add your name to the statement to the Legislature:


WE PLEDGE to stand together and reach out with our unions and community organizations to co-workers, friends, family and neighbors.
WE CALL UPON THE CT STATE LEGISLATURE: The top priority in this economic crisis is to meet the needs of the people! Layoffs of public workers and cuts in basic services will make the crisis even worse, and are unacceptable. Stand firm for a truly progressive tax system. Act to eliminate the state spending cap so the people of Connecticut can receive maximum federal funding.
WE COMMIT to keep the grass roots momentum going to close the income gap and secure good jobs with union rights; health care; affordable housing; equal, quality public education, and a clean, safe and peaceful environment for everyone living in our state.
