The BFT will  once again joining with Connecticut’s labor movement to back candidates in the November 7 Municipal Election who will stand up for working people, not special interests. This year is unique because many are themselves union members — and they need our support to help put them over the top.
By volunteering a few hours this weekend to talk to union members in your community, you can make a real difference:
  • WHEN: Saturday, September 16 from 8:30AM to 12:00PM.
  • WHERE: Walk is being organized from the Bristol Central Labor Chapter (CLC), located at 61 East Main Street in the Forestville section of Bristol.
  • HOW: Click here to RSVP by email to join us.

Volunteers will get training beforehand, head out in pairs, be provided a “script” and a packet of local union members in Bristol to meet with. The point is to knock on the door of fellow union members and ask explain the importance of voting for union endorsed candidates. For anyone who themselves has a desire to one day run for public office, this is a great learning opportunity.

We hope you will join us next Saturday and help elect union members to help lead Bristolto a better future for working people like us.
In solidarity,
