Paraeducators “Living Wage” Lobby Day

Members of AFT Connecticut-affiliated Paraprofessionals & School-Related Personnel (PSRP) unions are invited to participate in this coordinated lobby day to meet lawmakers considering passing HB 5348: An Act Concerning Paraeducators. This is an opportunity to share stories of how paraeducators play a crucial role in the educational system. 

AFT Connecticut’s legislative advocates will be on hand to help identify elected representatives. Members are encouraged to bring at least one colleague to help pass the proposed legislation into law and give Paraprofessionals the living wage they deserve.

Once through security, please contact AFT Connecticut legislative staff Jim Vigue (860) 638-8611 for further directions.
