With the current climate in the political arena, a little more chick power would be a powerful thing. Kudos to this new movement in Connecticut.

The Hartford Courant is reporting about a new political organization's goal is to get more progressive women into state office. This week PoliticaCT, kicked off in Hartford. The group was co-founded by Connecticut Senator, Beth Bye, D-West Hartford and attorney Jamie Mills, who practices in Hartford.

Women working together, supporting one another, and occupying seats in government is a strength I believe we need now more than ever.

The website politicact.org states the organizations mission to be:

To build a more progressive Connecticut through issue advocacy and the strategic recruitment, mentoring, and support of progressive women to run in targeted, winnable elections at the state level.

If you have an interest in find information about the numerous organizations and the individuals behind them, fighting for equality and justice not only in Connecticut but beyond our state borders, the site offers links to various resources at politicact.org/resources
