2017: A year of resistance

The Connecticut district of the Communist Party had a busy year of struggle. Take a look a look at our video  reviewing the district’s work last year.  From the fight for 15 to immigrant rights, to jobs for youth, the Connecticut Communist Party has been working to build resistance to the Trump agenda.  Key to the district’s approach is working at the grassroots to involve ordinary working-class people, black, Latino, Asian and white in the fight for a better life.  This also applies to our election work whether it be for the Board of Aldermen, the State Assembly or Congress.
