Homework to hand in:

Write a letter to a legislator about an issue that is important to you. Look up children, education, mental health- there is a subject I am sure that will pop out at you.
Find a bill on the CGA website. https://www.cga.ct.gov/ (Links to an external site.)
You can search by bill subject or by committee. You can either Click “Bill Info” and search bill by subject, or Click Committees, find a Committee and Click Bills Reported Out. Read public hearing testimony about the bill for some background.

3. Write a letter to your legislator- find your legislator on the bottom of the website. If you are not from CT, find a Bridgeport legislator to write to. In the writing of the letter keep in mind the upstream causes lessons that we learned this week. Show me in the letter you have an understanding of the relationship between individual behavior and policy/ upstream causes.

4. Hand in a copy of the letter to me- consider sending a copy of the letter to your legislator – email or print!
