Early bird registration ends today for “Small State, Big Debate”

Today is the last day for early bird registration for The Connecticut Mirror’s Small State, Big Debate: Inequality. You can find registration, speakers and the day’s schedule at the event’s website here.

We thank those who already registered and took advantage of the savings.

Packages include savings for individuals, nonprofits, businesses and a pay-it-forward special for students or generous individuals who wish to purchase for a group.

In 2014, inequality is a defining presence in Connecticut and throughout this country. Equity issues persist with topics such as health, income, education and housing. We have put together a program that will bring the conversation to another level and hope you will be a part of it at the University of Hartford on April 29.
