Patient Care Candlelight Vigil Recap

We at Danbury Rising! would like to thank all the community members who came out and stood in solidarity with the healthcare professionals fighting for a fair contract at Danbury and New Milford Hospitals.  Those that attended our candlelight vigil heard testimony from healthcare workers, community members, and elected officials, including Senator Richard Blumenthal.  We look to build on the momentum of this event going forward, to continue to apply pressure for a fair contract for the hospital technicians and therapists.
