COVID & High Risk Populations

On the two year anniversary of Governor Lamont’s first executive order on Covid-19, the Green Party of CT hosted the forum: Deliberate Indifference: Pandemic, Public Health, and High Risk Populations, with speakers Kathy Flaherty, Alex Marie, and Alicia Hernandez Strong sharing insights on the pandemic’s impact on disabled people, people with compromised immune systems, and people in prisons and other institutions.

The presenters examined the failure of ableist public health policy, and considered what might have been done and what still must be done to create policies that protect the well-being of everyone in the community.

Kathy Flaherty is a disability rights activist and attorney, and Executive Director of Connecticut Legal Rights Project. Alex Marie is an immunocompromised person active in local disability rights work; Alicia Hernandez Strong is a founder of the New Britain Racial Justice Coalition.
