CHESTER, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut Democratic candidates and political activists are gathering to voice concern about policies coming out of Washington, D.C.

The Blue Wave Fest is being held Sunday at the Chester Fairgrounds, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont, the Democratic Party’s endorsed gubernatorial candidate, is scheduled to be among the speakers, as well as General Assembly candidates.

Representatives of organizations such as the Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services will also be on hand.

Marta Daniels, the festival’s chairman, says it’s a way to encourage people to vote in November and “remedy these assaults on our democracy,” pointing to the recent controversy over separating migrant families at the border.

Fifteen Democratic town committees in the lower Connecticut River valley and shoreline area are sponsoring the event, which also includes music.
