About the event
(RSVP and purchase tickets here.)Want to help build a stronger, more equitable and more inclusive democracy and economy for ALL Connecticut residents? We do too. Join us.
You are cordially invited to the official launch of GENERATION CHANGE CT, a new statewide political action committee committed to advancing democratic and electoral reforms, expanding voting rights and participation, and increasing economic opportunity across the state of Connecticut – especially in service of those from traditionally underrepresented and underserved communities.
Connecticut can and should be a national leader in the fight for a government, economy and society that fully includes and works for ALL its residents. Together, we can help make this a reality by advancing bold, forward-thinking policies and programs; supporting inspiring candidates and causes; and partnering with like-minded organizations that share this vision of positive change.
This kick-off event will be both in-person and virtual, and also feature a film screening and panel discussion (with special guests!) on the riveting, new documentary, ALL IN: THE FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY. (See trailer below.)

MORE ABOUT THE FILM
ALL IN: THE FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY is a riveting examination of voter suppression in the United States that weaves rich archival storytelling with the personal experiences of experts, activists, and would-be voters deprived of their rights. Stacey Abrams, the former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives and the first female African-American major-party gubernatorial nominee, offers an insider’s look at the patchwork of laws and barriers designed to hinder voting. ALL IN explores fundamental questions: Who gets to participate in our democracy, and who is pushed aside? How can we all fight back? (Watch trailer here.)
