The "Institutional Financial Aid" for undocumented students is in DANGER of dying and we need YOUR ACTION to help save it!
The bill, SB 475, is only in the beginning stages of the fight, but it could die before we even get off the ground. It currently sits in the Higher Education Committee waiting for action by the Committee Chairs to move it forward. But Chair Rep Roberta Willis, does not want to move it forward, meaning that it will die unless we take action!
Now is the time for us to stand up and show that our community supports this bill and supports equal higher education for all students in CT!
CALL IN DAY OF ACTION: WEDNESDAY, FEB 13th
This Wednesday join us in calling Rep Willis and tell her to support SB 475 and move it forward to a public hearing!!
Call the CT House Democrats Main Line: (860) 240-8585
You will speak to a secretary: "Hello, can you please connect me to Representative Willis' office?"
