One week remains for early bird registration for The Connecticut Mirror’s first statewide event, “Small State, Big Debate: Inequality.” You can find registration, speakers and the day’s schedule at the event’s website here.

Early bird registration lasts until next Monday, March 24.

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.

The full-day event will feature:


Dolores Acevedo-Garcia, Brandeis University
Director, Institute For Child, Youth And Family Policy

Jacob Hacker, Yale University
Director, Institution For Social and Policy Studies

Nikole Hannah-Jones, ProPublica
Civil Rights Reporter

John Jackson, Schott Foundation


The Mayoral Perspective: Inequality Across Connecticut’s Cities
Pedro Segarra, Mayor of Hartford
John DeStefano, Former Mayor of New Haven
Deb Hinchey, Mayor of Norwich

The Foundation Approach: Exploring Public/Private Partnerships
Juanita James, President/CEO, Fairfield County Community Foundation
Linda J. Kelly, President, Hartford Foundation For Public Giving
Will Ginsberg, President/CEO, Community Foundation For Greater New Haven

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.
