Save the Safety Net Rally


Scattered showers did not stop over 800 people from Connecticut’s private, nonprofit social service agencies from rallying at the State Capitol on Wednesday, January 30, 2013. The rally was to urge legislators to restore budget cuts and preserve the Safety Net.

HARC had a good showing at the rally with more than 20 participants, families and staff attending, wearing yellow T-shirts that read “Protect the Safety Net” and chanting “SOS, Save our Safety Net.” HARC family members Charlie Duffy and Deb Ullman eloquently spoke at the rally, helping put a human face on DDS budget cuts.
