A so-called Vigil for Inequality is being held in Danbury tonight. It's one of many being held across the state by Connecticut Working Families. The events are meant to bring state residents together to demand action that would create an economy that works for everyone.
There are several bills before the General Assembly the group says would help achieve that goal. They include a bill to hold large corporations accountable, creating a retirement for all savings plan that will allow people to retire with security and a bill that would find solutions to address the student debt crisis.
The Danbury event is being held at 6pm at Walmart on Newtown Road.
