Legislation is being proposed that could potentially be devastating to the Children's Law Center as well as the children we represent.  This could be extremely damaging to the program you have supported over the years. Mass numbers are critical to contact legislators. 

 

Here is the link to the proposed bill:  http://www.cga.ct.gov/2015/TOB/H/2015HB-05505-R01-HB.htm

We are also attaching KeyTalking Points about the pending legislation to give you more information. Talking Points: Bill 5505

Judiciary Committee members must vote on Bill 5505 on FRIDAY, APRIL 10 in order to meet the deadline for the April 13 final committee bill. 

 

We understand that those in favor of the bill are lobbying hard and we need to make a final all-out push to influence judiciary committee members on our point of view. Please help in several ways:

  • Write an IMMEDIATE letter to the editor of any Connecticut news outlet
  • Forward this email on to all your friends, family and colleagues.

THANK YOU!

The Children's Law Center of Connecticut

Maurice A. Jones On...The Color of Law

We are back this month with Richard Rothstein, author of The Color of Law, a Distinguished Fellow of the Economic Policy Institute and a Senior Fellow, emeritus, at the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP. In this episode, we delve into the historical context for the work LISC does, through the prism of the book’s major theme: residential racial segregation, which was enforced via federal and local law and policy though much of the 20th century.

The Power of Partnerships

From the unprecedented $1.5 billion we invested last year in people and communities across the country, to our burgeoning collaborations with sectors ranging from tech and healthcare to sports and local government, the LISC 2018 Annual Report is chock full of good news, good numbers, and good ideas. These resources and strategies propel us on our journey to shape a brighter future for all our nation's residents. And that, in a nutshell, is the heart of LISC's mission. Read on!

A Night To Remember

On the evening of April 23rd, 700 partners, colleagues and allies gathered to officially mark LISC's 40th anniversary at a gala celebration in New York City. Special guests and speakers included New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter, former Vice President Walter Mondale, former HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros, and former Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Mathews Burwell. And of course, our 20-year board chair, former US Treasury Secretary Robert E. Rubin, the evening's distinguished honoree.
