CONECT workshop with Lead Organizer, Matt McDermott.
CONECT is a collective of churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, and civic organizations from New Haven and Fairfield Counties – representing more than 20,000 people from different races, faith backgrounds, and living in both cities and suburbs – that have joined together to take action on social and economic justice issues of common concern. CONECT has made an impact on issues as varied as gun violence, health insurance rates, police reform, immigrant rights, and more.
Many of CHJ’s members have been participating already by attending rallies, presentations by candidates for office and other gatherings, but there is much more we can do as a congregation.
Lead Organizer, Matt McDermott will give us a glimpse of what membership in CONECT looks like. All CHJ members are encouraged to attend; RSVP is not required. Non-members please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
