Hartford, CT supports the passage of Uniting American Families Act

The city council of Hartford, CT, passed a resolution in support of UAFA last night!

A very special thanks goes out to Out4Immigration member Pete Famiglietti, who worked with the city council and their staff to make this resolution a reality. Pete also went to the city council meeting and read a statement in support of UAFA and received applause from those in attendance!
