Looking Back on the 2023 Legislative Session

Congratulations to our legislative specialists and members around the state who effected change during our state legislative session ending on June 7, 2023.
Thank you to everyone who contacted your legislator or other decisionmakers, coordinated efforts with allied organizations, or made phone calls, sent emails, wrote letters to the editor & op-eds, hosted rallies, education campaigns, town halls, and more!
We have a lot to celebrate in 2023, including making Connecticut a national leader in voting rights, defending Connecticut’s model Campaign Election Program (CEP), and advancing gun safety laws. See below for a complete summary of our advocacy efforts this year.
