The Hartford City Council on Monday, December 8 voted unanimously to refer a resolution in support of the Hartford Rising! “Community Bill of Rights” to its Quality of Life and Public Safety Committee for further review.
This step forward is a direct result of the activism of the individuals and organizations that make up our diverse coalition. But our work is far from over — we need to mobilize to make sure our voices continue to be heard.
Stay tuned for information on next steps — and how you can help make sure the Bill of Rights is formally adopted by the City Council.
Parents, students, teachers, clergy, union members, and civil rights and social justice activists in the Hartford Rising movement came together to take the next steps in creating a safe, vibrant and equitable city.
Join the campaign and add your voice to planning out our next steps forward. Attend the monthly general meeting, held on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 6:00PM, at the Salvation Army Learning Center, located at 100 Nelson Street, in Hartford.
