Local Round-Up: ACA Outreach and the New Minimum Wage

The deadline for enrollment in health insurance under the Affordable Care Act is March 31, and members of the Wesleyan Young Advocates have been working tirelessly since September 2013 to ensure that Middletown residents have the information and resources necessary to enroll. WYA and the Community Health Center are hosting an ACA Celebration Brunch to recognize contributions toward CT enrollment on Saturday March 29 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM at the CHC (675 Main Street), and then they will distribute information materials to businesses in New Britain until 3 pm. Shuttles will be provided from Usdan until 11:30, and volunteers do not need extensive knowledge of the ACA in order to participate. For more information, contact Marshal Lawler ’16 at plawler[at]wesleyan[dot]edu and Sagar Parekh at ParekhS[at]chc1[dot]com
