STAGE1What a day!

On Saturday October 14, two hundred health care activists, advocates and organizations gathered at the Protect Our Care CT campaign’s Health Care Action Summit to:

  • Educate ourselves about key state and federal health care issues
  • Learn more about health policy and advocacy strategies
  • Set the stage for adoption of a Protect Our Care CT action plan for 2018 and beyond that builds our state’s capacity for positive change

The day began with a plenary featuring (l-r):

Following the plenary session, participants attended workshops focused on organizing and advocacy skill-building and on health policy challenges and solutions.

Lunchtime speaker Wendy Fields (Executive Director, Democracy Initiative),  charged attendees with committing themselves to becoming part of a grassroots movement in the state to demand accountability from policymakers for a health care system that benefits everyday people.

The day ended with a reception with invited elected officials.  Both Senator Richard Blumenthal and Representative Elizabeth Esty were able to stop by to offer words of encouragement to attendees.
