The Mirror’s ‘Small State, Big Debate: Race’ event set for Oct. 6

The Connecticut Mirror, the state’s award-winning, nonprofit public policy news organization, will hold its second statewide public policy event, “Small State, Big Debate: Race,” on Tuesday, Oct. 6, at Fairfield University.

Tickets go on sale today with an early bird special through Aug. 20. Find all the details here.

The event will feature New York Times columnist Charles Blow as the keynote speaker and include sessions on criminal justice, education, health care, data and housing. The event will focus on the question: “How will public policy impact diverse populations in Connecticut in the immediate and distant future?”

The day will also feature a Mirror and TrendCT hackathon, focusing on Connecticut’s racial profiling data, which records every traffic stop in the state. A reception will cap the day’s event.

The Mirror is now the premier public policy news organization in Connecticut with 11 strategic media partners that cover more than 70 percent of the state.

The event is sponsored by The Tow Foundation, The William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund, Newman’s Own Foundation and the Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut.

We hope to see you there.
