I continue to admire and be amazed by the considerable talents, kindnesses and diversity of the New Haven community. And yet, still note major stumbling blocks in achieving a more equitable society, including here in New Haven and surrounding areas. So, look to GNH Community for information about upcoming events, as well as content relating to social justice concerns. Also appreciate the opportunity to post promotional information about upcoming CT Folk events (such as annual CT Folk Festival / Green Expo, next on Sept 8, 2018). Thanks for this forum!
