Event Description

We are requesting the help of health professionals to advocate for SB956 to expand Medicaid access to Connecticut residents, regardless of migratory status. This bill was given a 12-hour hearing where uninsured patients shared their heartbreaking stories. Over 300 providers from Connecticut signed on to a letter of support to the Senate leadership.

Still, no money has been allocated to this bill, not even for undocumented children or minors, despite its modestfiscal noteThe legislative session closes June 9th, and we must urge legislators to add funding to the budget!

To show our support as health professionals, we are organizing an action on June 7th from 4pm-6pm outside the Capitol Building (210 Capital Ave, Hartford, CT). During this protest, we will share our stories about the vast inequities that our uninsured patients continue to experience.

To RSVP for this action and/or offer to provide transportation for those who need it, please use this link: https://forms.gle/gcwKU7XPrF25i2oq7


If you haven’t yet, we urge you to sign this petition letter and tell the House and Senate Leadership to include funding in the budget for HUSKY for immigrants (SB956). Visit: http://bit.ly/FundHUSKY21


In solidarity,
