BRING BACK THE MATERNITY WARD!
Hartford Healthcare has eliminated labor & delivery services at Windham Hospital. Now, residents are forced to drive to Norwich, Manchester or Hartford for obstetrics care. This puts women and babies at risk! The bottom line should be what’s best for pregnant mothers and their babies – not what’s best for Hartford HealthCare’s profits.
The future of our community depends on quality and equal health care for all Windham area residents, especially our pregnant women and their babies.
Speak out to save our labor and delivery services! Call your governor, senators and representatives today!
In 2022, voters in Connecticut overwhelmingly approved a ballot question calling for early voting, but Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont did not include funding for early voting in his proposed budget. Please call Governor Lamont and tell him to fund early voting now! Visit the Common Cause website to learn how.
Rodney Alexander, First Vice President of the Windham/Willimantic NAACP Branch, was named one of 2023’s 100 Men of Color for his impact on the community. He will be honored at The 100 Men of Color Gala & Awards on October 27, 2023.
