Q. Who is organizing this campaign?
A. The campaign is a non-political effort organized by leaders of the Connecticut bar who believe that due process and equal justice mean that children and families should have lawyers at their side when they seek to have their legal status adjudicated. Attorneys Chase Rogers and Bob Holtzberg are chairing the effort, backed by 17 current and former heads of the Connecticut Bar Association and others. Read more here.
