Calling for the people of Connecticut to call for an end to child marriage in Connecticut. This issue impacts all communities.

ASKIING FOR YOUR HELP IN ENDING CHILD MARRIAGE
I am asking for your help regarding an issue pending in the CT Judicial Committee. It is an issue which is connected to human trafficking. It also touches on female rights, ethnicity, culture, and protecting minors in Connecticut. The issue is ending child marriage. Myths about child marriage include the marriages are about Romeo and Juliet relationships. The truth is more serious as often the minors are victims of r**e or about keeping an illegal person in this country by marrying a minor. These relationships often consist of domestic violence, forced pregnancies, a minor being forced to quit school to participate in human trafficking.

Hi
PLEASE HELP END CHILD MARRIAGE IN CONNECTICUT.
I am asking for your help. State Representative Kerry Wood submitted a bill which is HB5920
https://www.cga.ct.gov/.../CGABillSt.../cgabillstatus.asp...
This bill would stop child marriages in the state of Connecticut. The United States’ State Department and the United Nations has called child marriage a human rights violation. The pending legislation would close the loopholes and not allow a minor to be forced into a marriage against their will.
Connecticut
On October 1, 2017, Connecticut raised the minimum marriage age to 16, as well as requiring both parental and judicial consent before minors could marry. Previously, there was no minimum marriage age so long as a judge consented.[86] (For additional information, I have attached a link to AHA which is an organization advocating for the end of child marriage. Its fact sheet explains why the CT law, and other states which have similar laws to CT, does not protect these minors.
Cases of child marriage exist in every racial/ethnic demographic but are more prevalent in some as compared to others. Instances of marriage were lower among white non-Hispanic children (5.0 per 1,000) than among almost every other racial or ethnic group studied[when?]; it was especially high among children of Native American or Chinese descent (10.3 and 14.2, respectively)[11] Additionally, U.S.-born African American girls are about 1.5 times more likely to marry underage than U.S.-born Caucasian girls.[35] Girls of Hispanic/ Latina origin are more likely than those of black or white heritage to be married as a minor.[36]
It was more common for immigrating children to be married than those born within the United States[when?]. Between the budget years 2007 and 2017, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services received 3.5 million immigration petitions, resulting in 8,686 approvals for people in marriages or engagements where one or both members of the couple was still a minor at the time of the petition.[37] The Koski/Heymann study found that prevalence among children from Mexico, Central America, and the Middle East was 2-4 times that of children born in the United States.[29]

Child Marriage - The AHA Foundation
https://www.theahafoundation.org/child-marriage
Child marriage is the marriage of a minor below the legal age of majority, which in most countries is 18. Girls are the most vulnerable and most likely population to be forced into marriage before 18. Child marriage severely jeopardizes girls’ health and robs them of education and economic freedom. It also increases their risk of domestic violence.

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.

Hartford Courant I think you need to fix your website for Covid Vaccine Qualification. Your website says "Food service and restaurant" workers and "grocery store" workers are eligible but if you click the link through to the state site, those positions are not listed at currently eligible under group 1b. Wouldn't want anyone to schedule and appointment then get denied when they get there. I have screen shots but it won't let me post them.
Former President Trump continues to live rent free in the heads of the Democrats and media. The insane sham impeachment will fail. Everyone knows it. Meanwhile the Democrats are paralyzed, unable to act on any issue concerning the nation including Covid. Hate, venom and delusion are no way to run a country. But the Democrats and the media are capable of little else.

My 91 yr old dad has not received his newspaper in a week
His bill is paid automatically,
I've called customer service 5 days straight..
All he wants is his paper to read while he enjoys his paper every morning
Do your drivers know how to put a newspaper INTO the newspaper box?
Why isn’t the media covering this HUGE story? You know it is the TRUTH, when they try to censor it. Click See Video. https://www.facebook.com/suvad.knight/videos/10158553327615861/
Joe Biden just gave a huge gift to Iran. What did they give to Hunter to get it? Biden has reportedly moved to temporarily freeze weapons sales from U.S. arms manufacturers to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, a decision that could jeopardize Raytheon Technologies Corp.’s $478 million precision-guided bomb contract with the Royal Saudi Armed Forces. Hurray for terrorists.
This should sacre the living daylights out of every American. This mentally dull man is unfit for office. https://www.facebook.com/1625494807/posts/10222251234822873
