In April, we filed a federal lawsuit in conjunction with our sister organization, We The Patriots USA, Inc., challenging Connecticut's repeal of the religious exemption to mandatory immunizations for schoolchildren. This lawsuit is especially important with the threat of mandatory covid shots for children ages 5-12 looming on the horizon.
A lot has happened since April. Briefs have been filed, as well as motions to dismiss and objections to motions. Organizations have filed appearances to file amicus briefs in opposition to our lawsuit. But this Wednesday, October 27, 2021 at 2:30 p.m., we will have our first hearing in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut. Attorney Norm Pattis, joined by CTFA Co-Founder & General Counsel Brian Festa, will appear before Judge Janet Arterton to argue for the rights of all children in the state who have been denied an education simply for holding fast to their sincere religious beliefs.

We will keep you updated as soon as we have a decision in the case. Please pray for us, and for every child in Connecticut.
