Today, CSI Founder and President Maya Wiley joined the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, Voices of Women of Color and the Connecticut Commission on Health Equity for the town hall program: Transforming Hartford: The Call to Action Continues.  The program focused on closing health and economic inequities in Hartford and eliminating the achievement gap among its students.

Maya shared her thoughts on meeting the challenges in Hartford, CT and the nation and how to create fair and lasting opportunity for all communities, including communities of color.

    So not even impressed right now. The Harriet Beecher Stowe Center doesn’t even hire people of color! They’re an all white staff (Oh- except one person. OOHHHH THE EQUALITY)! They need to do more than attend these functions to erase the fact that they exploit experiences of racism and people of color in the name of equality everyday.
