HARTFORD – State Representative Rosa C. Rebimbas (R-Naugatuck) was recognized by the Children’s Law Center of Connecticut at their annual meeting on October 16th and was presented with their Superhero Award. The recognition was for Rep. Rebimbas’ continued advocacy on behalf of Connecticut’s children and the organization. The Children’s Law Center is also celebrating their 25th anniversary this year.
“One of the most rewarding parts of my job both in law and in public service is the opportunity to help children and families in need,” Rep. Rebimbas said. “There are thousands of minors throughout the state caught in the middle of domestic disputes, unable to defend and advocate for themselves. I am very grateful for this recognition, but I accept the award knowing that our work on behalf of Connecticut’s most vulnerable is ongoing. As long as I continue serving as state representative, I will fight for legislation in support of this great cause and will fight equally hard to stop legislation undermining these efforts.”
The Children’s Law Center of Connecticut provides legal resources and services to children and families in crisis. There is no cost to low-income families. The organization represents cases of abuse, neglect, and family conflict such as divorces and custody battles. Their services include legal representation in court, mediation, a law line, legislative advocacy and training for professionals.
The center has chosen to recognize Rep. Rebimbas because of her support for pro-child legislation, and her defense of the organization and its mission.
