Yesterday, VSEA Social Worker Trissie Casanova was back at the State House, testifying in support of S. 154; legislation that will enhance the penalties for assaulting a DCF worker and criminalize the act of making threats.

This needs to happen, and Casanova’s testimony yesterday explains why:

“I personally have been threatened to be killed, my building blown up, I’ve had people waiting for me outside by my car. I’ve had things sent to my personal home. I have been personally sued for doing my job. And I know I’m not the only person that’s experienced these things.”

Thanks to Trissie and all the VSEA members who have been coming to the State House to make their case for enhanced safety protections while at work.

We Are Sobel Strong!
