Yankee Institute is a dynamic nonprofit committed to empowering Connecticut’s people to forge a brighter future for themselves, and their families. We do this by advancing policies designed to make our state a beacon of hope and affordability for everyone; serving as a watchdog on state government; and equipping our state’s people with the information they need to shape Connecticut’s future.
In Hartford and around the state, Yankee Institute is proud to be the eyes, ears – and voice – of the people and businesses who love Connecticut and believe our home is worth fighting for. We represent the people who don’t have lobbyists in the state Capitol – people who work hard and pay their taxes – and deserve to have their commonsense views heard and respected. Our vision is of a thriving state where business feels welcome and generations of families prosper together.
