Organizer Trey Garea of East Haven says that letters of invite have been sent to media, the capitol, the CIAC, as well as the Department of Health, which is the organization that kaboshed the season to begin with.

Here’s a quick stat.. There have been 53,365 total cases and 4,468 deaths in CT. 87% of cases and 97% of deaths before July 1. There has only been 1 death between ages 10-19 in the state.
Garea also says that if you do come to the protest, please wear a mask.
