TOMORROW: Black and Puerto Rican Caucus to Support Health Care Workers in Nursing Homes & Highlight Inequities

Led by Senator Marilyn Moore, Legislators to Highlight Disparities at Connecticut Nursing Homes


CONNECTICUT - Tomorrow, Monday May 25, starting at 8:30 A.M. the Black and Puerto Rican Caucus of the Connecticut General Assembly will visit nursing homes across the state. The elected officials will be traveling different routes over the course of the morning and early afternoon and concluding at Avery Heights in Hartford at 1:00 P.M.

At each location legislators will be speaking with a few workers from the nursing home to express their appreciation for their work. Legislators will be highlighting the fact that black and brown people are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 as workers exposed to the virus and in some instances are not provided with the necessary personal protective equipment. Despite low wages, a lack of safe recovery accommodations, and a lack of paid time off, these workers continue to work on the front lines of this pandemic supporting all of our families.
