2022 Report to Our Community

Toward Justice For All

What does a more just Eastern Connecticut look like? In 2022, acts of justice took different forms across Eastern Connecticut, and the results sparked visions of hope. You’ll see hope through the stories in these pages. Beacons of justice were lit often across Eastern Connecticut — ignited by our grantees, donors, volunteers, scholars, and community partners. And because of these efforts, a better tomorrow — and a more just region — are possible.
