Growing Together Connecticut; Equitable Urban Revitalization

Help us discover the policy opportunities for Equitable Urban Revitalization in Connecticut.

Complete this survey and share with friends in your community. 

Connecticut's cities are the innovation, business and cultural centers of our state. Decades of disinvestment and segregationist housing practices have undermined our cities' growth and development and constrained opportunity for urban residents. Connecticut's inequitable policies and history of disinvestment in urban centers needlessly limits our state's potential.

Hundreds of thousands of families choose to live in cities because they love the atmosphere, amenities, excitement, cultural institutions and influences and possibilities of urban life. Help us identify policy changes that can be developed to remove structural barriers to opportunity in urban centers by sharing your lived experience in your city

Regulate DOC Healthcare CT

Public Act No. 22-133, An Act Requiring the Development of a Plan Concerning the Delivery of Health Care and Mental Health Care Services to Inmates of Correctional Institutions has passed!

Thank you to the Regulate DOC Healthcare CT Coalition and all our partners in advocating for equitable health care for incarcerated individuals. The unanimous approval moves Connecticut one step closer to improved health outcomes for incarcerated individuals and returning citizens!

Alongside our partners and community advocates, YWCA Hartford Region is proud to lead the Regulate DOC Healthcare CT Coalition. This year the coalition advocated for legislation to regulate healthcare provided by the Department of Corrections. To mitigate state costs associated with the rise in medical malpractice litigations and the detriment of incarcerated people, DOC healthcare workers and returning citizens.
