Piles of Petitions

By

After months of hard work, we’ve hit our goal of collecting over 4,000 petitions to the Connecticut legislature calling on them to update the bottle bill.  Kudos to our field staff and student volunteers who collected most of them, and thanks to everyone who took action online.  With the legislative session just around the corner, we now have the large task of sorting through the piles of petitions to make sure we deliver each one to the correct legislator.  We know that in order to overcome bottling company opposition we’re going to have to demonstrate a lot of public support and these petitions are a key way of doing that.  If you haven't signed yet, it's not too late to sign online – click here – and encourage your friends and family to sign as well!

Defend the CFPB

Tell your senators to oppose the “Financial CHOICE Act,” which would gut Wall Street reforms and destroy the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as we know it.
