CCAR Advocacy

Your virtual home for Recovery Advocacy! For years now, our Statewide Recovery Advocacy Meetings have served as forums for discussion between members of the Recovery community and representatives from decision-making bodies. We offer a number of trainings throughout the year to empower individuals to provide testimony at the State Legislature and pursue their own Advocacy goals. Here we’ll provide information and resources to support Recovery Advocacy on the State and National level. We’re still building-out this page so check back for new additions. Your voice has power – join CCAR Advocacy and make it heard!

Enroll in the Connecticut General Assembly Bill Tracking platform.

This platform is free of charge, one simply needs to register as a user, and you’ll be able to explore all bills before the legislature and receive notifications as things evolve. A great tool for Recovery Advocates!

Coming Soon:

Our Advocacy training schedule outlines in-person and virtual offerings where we’ll be preparing for the 2021 legislative session.  We’ll have an opportunity to meet with elected officials and other stakeholders as well as providing training for crafting testimony on matters of importance to the Recovery community! We always need Recovery Advocates willing to put a positive face on recovery and to show that recovery is possible. If you’d like to contribute, email: rebecca@ccar.us
