Stand Against Racism - Take Action

On April 26, 2019, Everyday Democracy hosted its 7th Stand Against Racism Day event in partnership with the YWCA of Greater Hartford. Entitled No Hate, No Fear: Immigrant Justice is Racial Justice, the event brought together Everyday Democracy staff members as well as representatives of some of the nonprofit organizations that are also part of the CT Nonprofit Alliance to address shared concerns about the racist, divisive, and hateful narrative that we hear almost every day about immigration and the so-called “crisis at the border.”

First Annual Connecticut Civic Summit

As people throughout the state and country lose faith in public institutions, it is more important than ever to engage residents with each other and with their government. That is why Everyday Democracy, in partnership with Secretary of the State The Honorable Denise Merrill, launched the Connecticut Civic Ambassadors Initiative in September this year.  CT Civic Ambassadors are catalysts for civic action in Connecticut toward creating stronger civic health and REAL socioeconomic benefits both in terms of social capital and community well-being.
