For Immediate Release

Sen. Lisa Seminara, Ranking Senator on the Human Services Committee, on Feb. 26 joined with lawmakers and community advocates at a press conference to call for more state support for nonprofit organizations across Connecticut.

“We are fighting for our nonprofits here at the State Capitol,” Sen. Seminara said. “They provide such vital, valuable and effective services for our most vulnerable residents, yet they have been underfunded for years. Last year, I was proud to help lead the bipartisan push for a long-overdue increase in funding for nonprofits, but the needs remain significant. I know, because I hear from nonprofit organizations on a daily basis. This must be a priority for us here in Hartford, and I will continue to be a strong advocate for our nonprofits.”
