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.

Civil Rights Reporter

And much more, including discussions on data and health and an all-day hackathon. The early bird special will last for two weeks. We thank you for your support and will see you at UHart on April 29.
