All Connecticut children can reach their full potential when we embrace diverse identities and remove barriers to well-being.Our Priorities
We promote the well-being of all of Connecticut’s children and families by identifying and advocating for strategic public investments and wise public policies.
Children do well when families do well. Connecticut Voices advocates for solutions that build healthy children and families, such as integrated community health services, prevention-focused programs, and the elimination of policies and practices that unjustly punish Black and Brown children and families.
All children in Connecticut deserve access to a high-quality education that supports their development from birth through college and career. Connecticut Voices supports educational policies and practices that reduce the predictability of student outcomes based on race and other demographics.
Budgets are a clear reflection of what and who we value as a state. Connecticut Voices identifies investments in children as the primary budget priority but we also advocate for a fair and adequate tax system that supports state budget investments in the well-being of families and promotes inclusive growth within our state’s economy.
Connecticut Voices identifies children and families most at risk and advocates for research-based policies that advance equity and opportunity regardless of race, ethnicity, geography, or family structure.
Connecticut Voices for Children released a report entitled ‘Census 2020: Lack of State Funding Raises Risk of an Inaccurate 2020 Census Count’ that reveals the likelihood and heightened risks of an inaccurate count during the 2020 Census. In response to these findings, CT Voices is urging state leaders to prioritize statewide planning and investment in Census outreach and education to ensure our state isn’t impacted by the far-reaching consequences of an undercount to residents, state and local governments, dozens of federal and state programs and benefits, as well as Connecticut’s democracy and economy.Download The Press Release Download The Report

The HUSKY Eligibility Manual for children and families is a tool created by ‘Covering Connecticut’s Kids and Families’, a state-wide coalition of organizations enrolling Connecticut families in the HUSKY program since 1999. It is designed to serve as a reference for advocates, providers, outreach workers, and community-based organizations who work with families.Download The Report
