Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Racial Equity Goals:

  • To guide all adult education staff members in reflection about what they have been taught to believe about the world and their own race.

  • To provide activities and discussions that lead to concrete actions which reduce bias and inequities in adult education organizations.

  • To assume the responsibility of our leadership roles in order to advocate for inclusive and equitable environments.

  • To model a willingness to take risks, reflect, accept feedback, make a change, be wrong, own our ignorance, commit to hard inner work, challenge each other, and be comfortable with being uncomfortable.

LGBTQ Pride Month - each June commemorates the Stonewall Riots, sometimes viewed as the beginning of the movement for LGBTQ rights and equality. Click HERE for more information.

  • The Stonewall Riots began in the early hours of June 28, 1969, when New York City police raided the Stonewall Inn, a club located in Greenwich Village

  • The raid sparked a riot as police roughly and without justification hauled employees and patrons out of the bar, leading to six days of protests and violent clashes with law enforcement

  • CT Public Act 11-55 specifically addresses anti-discrimination on the basis of gender identity and expression.

Racial Equity Taskforce
