  • Repro Justice Working Group

    January 31, 2023 | 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    As socialist feminists, reproductive justice to us means organizing towards a world in which abortion is free and safe, on demand, and without apologies, AND where we can give birth without being bankrupted by healthcare debt, have children without worrying how to raise them on starvation wages, and have safe and dignified housing.

    Join us our working group to fight for reproductive justice in CT!

  • Cap the Rent: Public Testimony Workshop

    February 9, 2023 | 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
    zoom

    La traducción al español está abajo / Spanish translation is below

    RSVP: https://actionnetwork.org/events/cap-the-rent-public-testimony-workshop-2/

    Every voice counts in the fight to pass SB 138 to cap annual rent increases at 2.5% and end no-cause evictions. The real estate lobby has money, but millions of dollars is no match for the power of people acting collectively. Together—whether homeowner or renter, across race, class, and zip code—we’re going to show our state elected officials that rent stabilization NOW is the will of the people of Connecticut.

    The date of the public hearing for SB 138 will only be announced 5 days in advance. It could happen anytime from mid February to early March. For maximum impact, we must be prepared ahead of time, with our testimonies already written and rehearsed, so that we can show up in numbers at the Capitol in Hartford and powerfully combine our voices.

    Public testimonies are 3 minutes in length and can be given in person or online.

    Why do you support Cap the Rent and housing stability for all? What's your housing story? Join us online to workshop your public testimony with help from seasoned movement leaders.

    //

    Cada voz cuenta en la lucha para aprobar la SB 138 para limitar los aumentos anuales de renta al 2.5% y eliminar los desalojos sin causa. El lobby inmobiliario tiene dinero, pero millones de dólares no pueden competir con el poder de la gente que actúa colectivamente. Juntos, ya sean propietarios o inquilinos, sin importar la raza, la clase y el código postal, vamos a mostrarles a los legisladores de nuestro estado que la estabilización de la renta AHORA es la voluntad de la gente de Connecticut.

    La fecha de la audiencia pública para la SB 138 solo se anunciará con 5 días de anticipación. Podría suceder en cualquier momento desde mediados de febrero hasta principios de marzo. Para lograr el máximo impacto, debemos estar preparados con anticipación, con nuestros testimonios ya escritos y ensayados, de modo que podamos llegar con numeros grandes de personas en el Capitolio en Hartford y combinar poderosamente nuestras voces.

    Los testimonios públicos tienen una duración de 3 minutos y se pueden dar en persona o en línea.

    ¿Por qué apoya Cap the Rent y viviendas estables para todos? ¿Cuál es su historia de vivienda? Únase a nosotros en línea para escribir su testimonio público con la ayuda de líderes experimentados del movimiento.

    Habrá interpretación en español.

  • Cap the Rent Story Slam

    February 11, 2023 | 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
    Q House (Dixwell Community House), 197 Dixwell Ave, New Haven, CT 06511

    RSVP here: https://actionnetwork.org/events/cap-the-rent-story-slam

    When the demands of our Cap the Rent campaign are raised for a public hearing at the Capitol, it will be a battle for the story we tell about people, power, and profit as they relate to housing. Landlords will tell a story about lazy tenants and the supposedly dire consequences of regulating rent. We will tell a different story: about dignity, empowerment, stability, and community.

    Why do you support Cap the Rent? What's your housing story?

    Join us for a "story slam," a chance to share our stories with each other first, before we share them at the Capitol. Just like at a public hearing, each speaker will have 3 minutes to speak about why we need a cap on rent and an end to no-fault evictions. This will be a supportive and creative space to practice our public testimonies with each other and to hear from a diversity of community members about why we need housing stability for all.
