The COVID -19 pandemic is far from over. Connecticut has been one of the states most effected by the crisis. Yet Governor Lamont is begining to "re-open" the CT economy. Workers and community activists know from our daily experience that it is too soon to re-open. Workers are still getting sick on the job every day and should have the final say as to how and when the economy re-opens. Undocumented immigrant families are still not able to access relief and those who are incarcerated are trapped in a system that has ignored their health and safety. Instead millionaires and billionaire company owners are making this decision. As workers we refuse to die for their profits. On May 20th the day set for phase 1 of CT's "re-opening" CWCR is bringing together activists from prison abolition/#FreeThemAll, organzied labor, immigrant rights, and the environment. Join us for a panel discussion on building worker and community solidarity as we explore alternatives to reopening during the COVID crisis. Stick around after the panel as we continue the discussion in our regular Wednesday night CT Workers Crisis Response meeting.
We'll have panelists from the following organizations:
Unidad Latin@ en Accion
CT Workers Crisis Response
Mutual Aid Hartford
CT Climate Crisis Mobilization (C3M)
