Connecticut Fights to Keep Religious Exemption to Vaccination

Our attorney, Michael Sussman, is suing Governor Cuomo and New York State for repealing the religious exemption to vaccination for children on June 13, 2019. So few people realized just how significant this attack on civil liberties was at the time, and few realize how important it still is.

This Tuesday Connecticut is fighting to keep its religious exemption to vaccination. Here is John Gilmore’s call to everyone in the tri-state area to come and fight for the civil liberties of those in Connecticut and their children – mk

We need to get loud! Rise Up! BE BRAVE! Get your voices heard!

They need to be able to hear us on the Senate floor while they debate the bill. We could hear the small group during the House vote, imagine how loud thousands will be!

DAY OF TIPS :

Bring friends and family

Bring noise makers, bull horns and ear protection for the kiddos.

Wear comfortable shoes! There will be a lot of walking and standing.

It might be warm and then cold outside, so we suggest dressing in layers.

Pack a bag of essentials including water, snacks and extra layers.

Bring activities for your children.

Bring a portable charger for your phone.

Take your trash with you if you cannot find a garbage can.

There will be news coverage:

Media will be wearing a press badge around their neck, carrying a video camera, regular camera and/or a notepad and pen. If you are interviewed by the media, stick to brief, factual statements that cannot be edited, or find a versed advocate to speak to them.

Whenever possible, have someone you know record the interview too.

It’s helpful to plan your parking ahead of time and have a back-up option. It is common to have to drive around the city to find parking, especially if you’re looking for the closest on-street parking.
