Black, Brown and Indigenous people in Connecticut and across the country need you to stand up, speak up and show up!!

Let Governor Ned Lamont know that racism is a public health emergency and needs to be addressed IMMEDIATELY!!

A bill to Declare Racism a Public Health Crisis In CT has been introduced within the Joint Committee on Public Health by Senator Saud Anwar, 3rd District (Proposed S.B. No. 55 Session Year 2021). 

This petition will be sent to Governor Ned Lamont, the CT General Assembly and the Joint Committee on Public Health, urging members to raise this bill for a public hearing and Declare Racism a Public Health Crisis in CT.

Declaring Racism a Public Health Crisis in CT is an important step in the movement to advance racial equity and justice. This declaration will put a focus on systems and structures to help identify racist ideals that are woven into policies in areas such as housing, employment, education, the justice system and healthcare. This is needed in order for us to fight for the necessary funds, resources and services to address and eradicate systemic racism.
