Legislative Update

Legislative Update

The 2021 legislative session is less than a month old, and is off to an unusual start. While the action is remote and the bills seem to be fewer so far, that doesn’t mean that 2021 will be a lost year. Learn more about what we’re looking forward to.

We Won’t Stand for Sacrifice Zones

We Won’t Stand for Sacrifice Zones

We believe all people deserve clean water, clean air, and clean soil. To realize this vision, we need to protect vulnerable communities. These are the places where industries often choose to exploit the environment (and the people in it). In Connecticut, Killingly is one of these sacrifice zones needing our attention now.

Wildlife Committee Update

Wildlife Committee Update

The abrupt halt to last year’s Connecticut legislative session meant many critical bills were not passed, making the 2021 session more important than ever. From animals that suffer and die after being caught in barbaric steel-jaw traps, to the importation of African species on the brink of extinction, your support is critical to passing laws to protect vulnerable wildlife.
