BEST FRONT PAGE

"Friends Don't Let Friends Cross Picket Lines"

Judges Comments 
This page wins first place for the clarity and resolution of the cover. The red and blue color scheme runs throughout the cover. The choice of pictures were great and the slogan button in the middle signifying unity brings it all together.

"2019 CT VETERANS STAND DOWN EVENT"

Judges Comments 
Veterans are an important group that we must continue to take care of. They are plagued with many issues from mental health to job security. The story on Stand Downs was a great way to inform members and the community of the resources provided for veterans and alleviates the shame of needing help.

Very clean design and layout of information. Everything is easy to find and the menu isn't cluttered. Home page makes good use of the content area above articles for announcements. Overall great and easy to use site, especially for members!

Take Action

Take five minutes to make a difference today - email your US Senator today and ask them to support the HEROES Act (Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions)!

The HEROES Act would retain critical provisions, such as:
  • Creating a strong, enforceable temporary OSHA standard to working people in all sectors of our economy. The Senate must ensure that workers feel safe at work; it will slow the spread of the virus, and support a sustained, safe re-start of the economy.
