Standing Up For You!

Celebrating International Women's Day

This week, I joined with students, mothers, workers and advocates on International Women’s Day to push for Connecticut to adopt an Earned Family Medical Leave law, a Pay Equity law and an increase of the minimum wage. Earlier this year, Democrats in the State Senate and State House of Representatives released their Democratic Values Agenda, aimed at supporting the middle class and creating economic opportunities for everyone; opening access to education; protecting women’s health care; keeping Connecticut residents healthy; supporting Connecticut’s hospitals; and preserving our democracy. A major pillar of the agenda is economic security for women and families.

If Connecticut wants to retain young people, attract top talent and grow the middle class, passing an earned family medical leave bill, a pay equity bill and raising the minimum wage will give Connecticut a competitive advantage and send a message that our state values its workers and is a great place to live and raise a family.

March for Gun Reform in Norwalk

“Amazing” doesn’t even do justice to describe the turnout, energy, strength and commitment to safer communities free of gun violence.

Gun reform march

Our students who spoke are rock stars. Their words, passion and leadership are inspiring. I am so proud of everyone who had a hand in making today possible, especially the 400 who marched in solidarity with us.

The winds of change are with us and today is the beginning, not the end.

Connecticut's Got Talent

I am so proud of all of the gifted performers from Norwalk who graced the stage during the Connecticut's Got Talent finale. Each year, folks from all over Connecticut compete to be the champion.
