Connecticut Justice Party Meeting


From Anonymous ’13:

The Connecticut Justice Party will be holding an open meeting in Middletown on February 24th. The Connecticut Justice Party is affiliated with the Justice Party of America, a new political party that was founded by 2012 Presidential Candidate Rocky Anderson. The party is based on a centralist platform with progressive values and is focused on bringing justice to issues such as the economy, civil rights, education and the environment. With the aim of being a viable main-stream alternative to the Democratic and Republican parties, the Justice Party is quickly expanding across America.
