Commemorating 44 Years of Service to the Community

We were delighted to celebrate our 44th Annual Meeting on Monday, October 2nd. We have heard from many folks that this was our best annual meeting ever! Having the event at NXTHVN showcased this marvelous cultural facility in the Dixwell/Newhallville neighborhood. We were grateful to have local artists joining us in celebrating the arts and our community together.

A HUGE thank you to the talented artists that joined us on Monday and generously agreed to donate 15% of their profits to our cause! Thank you to Jasmine Nikole, Akosua Aidoo, Marquis Brantley, and Wanda Cortes-Reyes!
