Meet New Haven’s New Mayor, Toni Harp. The Gender Ceiling Is Broken - OneWorld's Civic Engagement

A OneWorld Progressive Institute’s CIVIC ENGAGEMENT Program


Meet New Haven’s Mayor- Toni Harp; the first female mayor in New Haven’s 375 year history, and the second African American to occupy the office. John Daniels was the first in 1989.

The glass ceiling has been broken in a major way. Share Mayor-elect Harp's interview with your children; it is truly inspiring. Where we start does not have to dictate where we end; Mayor Harp is a living proof.

Recently Paul Bass, NHI, joined OneWorld’s N’Zinga Shäni in a fascinating conversation with Mayor-elect Harp and the head of her transition team, Dr. Edward Joyner. You can see the entire discussion here: on OneWorld's YouTube Channel.

You may also watch a specific 5:30 mins segment here:

The program will air on Comcast Channel 18 in North Haven, and on AT&T Uverse 99 (drop down menu) starting on Tuesday 12/31 at10am, on Thursday 1/02/14 at 6pm, and on Sun. 1/5/14 at 11pm.

The program will also air in all surrounding towns from Branford (BCTV), East Haven, and Wallingford’s WPAA to Middletown, and all Valley towns on Comcast Channels 10, 15, and 18, and on AT&T Uverse.

Mayor Harp took the Oath of Office at Career High School at 12N on Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2014.  

Updated Jan. 6, 2014: New Haven turned out for her inauguration in a big way; Career High School is a facility designed by her architech husband, the late Wendell Harp.  The auditorium was filled to capacity with great spill-over.  Children and community groups (including the Unity Boys Choir and Salt & Pepper) performed.  The event was attended by the Governor, Lieut Governor, Senators Blumenthal and Murphy and many local and state representatives, community leaders and pastors.

Can Bold Federal Action Head Off a Covid-19 Housing Disaster?

The United States has never seen the scale of potential housing displacement that families are facing right now.
