We Need Your Voice This Legislative Session!

2/6/19 – With almost 30 freshman legislators and a newly elected governor, it is now more important than ever that we make our voice heard, and ensure that every legislator knows that we are counting on them to be bold on solving homelessness. This legislative session, there will be many opportunities for you to participate in advocacy, and help educate legislators on the importance of investing in efforts to end homelessness.

Join us in conducting in-district site visits, making emails and calls to legislators, testifying at public hearings, and mark your calendars for the 2019 Reaching Home Homelessness and Housing Advocacy Days which will be held on Wednesday, April 17th and Thursday, April 18th at the Legislative Office Building. 

CCEH will be working closely with the Partnership for Strong Communities, to help make sure that you have all of the advocacy resources needed this legislative session.

Please also set aside some time to watch the Advocacy Reboot Webinar: New Leadership, New Opportunities, and New Resolve. Kiley Gosselin from the Partnership for Strong Communities, Richard Cho and Sarah Fox from the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness, and Kate Robinson from Gallo & Robinson will provide you with an in-depth overview of the new election outcomes and their impact on the 2019 Reaching Home Campaign legislative priorities for Connecticut.
