Combatting Environmental Racism
I am a big fan of the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center. It is one of my "go-to" advocacy organizations for its commitment to social justice and positive change.
The April 21, 2016 Stowe Salon on Combatting Environmental Racism promises to be an excellent opportunity to listen to and talk directly with Hartford community leaders who are actively addressing environmental racism.
Since 2008, the Stowe Center has brought community members together for Salons at Stowe, spirited discussions of contemporary issues to foster engagement and community action.
Salon admission is FREE thanks to our members, donors and CT Department of Economic & Community Development; CT Office of the Arts; Ensworth Charitable Trust; City of Hartford Arts & Heritage Jobs Grants Program; Greater Hartford Arts Council; Hartford Foundation for Public Giving; The Hartford; Lincoln Financial Foundation; NewAlliance Foundation; and Travelers Foundation.
