#FreeThemNowCT House Party
Friends and Family of our members Julia and Josh at #FreeThemNowCT House Party, March 9th, 2022
Last night, our members Julia and Josh hosted a #FreeThemNowCT House Party which was facilitated by apprentice organizer Sir Gaston and senior community organizer Melanie Dominiguez. Community members discussed decarceration, the lasting impacts of the war on drugs, and our demand for Governor Lamont to develop a comprehensive and transparent COVID-19 plan for incarcerated people in Connecticut.
