Despite being a wealthy state with a relatively prosperous population, Connecticut is one of the most racially, ethnically, and economically segregated states in the country, with pockets of great poverty next to neighborhoods of great abundance. The panel will examine a knot of issues that affect Connecticut communities, such as housing, zoning, jobs and education, and will discuss the means of transforming Connecticut's struggling communities into vital regional centers. Dinner will be served. Co-sponsored by the Public Interest Law Group (PILG).
UConn Law is pleased to host this event as part of the 8th Annual UConn Law Diversity Week. Information on UConn Law Diversity Week and the entire schedule of events can be accessed on the UConn Law Diversity Week page.
