Connecticut Working Families
Working Families is a progressive independent political organization that fights for social,economic, and racial justice -- and wins. Formed by labor unions, community organizations,and grassroots activists, our aim is to advance bold policy goals that support dignity and justice for working class communities, communities of color and the unemployed.
Working Families combines issue advocacy campaigns with year-round electoral engagement to win ground breaking policies and elect strong progressive champions.
In Connecticut, Working Families led the fight for paid sick days legislation, and is currently leading efforts to win universal healthcare and a "fair share" budget that protects jobs and services on which low-income families depend.
