Life Is Delicious

October 22 – 7:00 p.m.
Don’t miss your chance to put Tikkun Olam into practice and experience an exciting evening with hundreds of other engaged citizens! Join with other CMI members and come to the CONECT Candidates’ Assembly on Monday, October 22 at 7 p.m. at Congregation B’nai Israel in Bridgeport (seating begins at 6:15 p.m.).

This is a minimal time commitment but it can make a big impact on future policy in CT. We expect 800 people to attend, asking Connecticut’s candidates for Governor, Treasurer and Attorney General to make specific commitments to address systemic issues important to us and to CONECT’s 27 other member congregations. As of this writing major party candidates for Governor, Treasurer and Attorney General – with the notable absence of Bob Stefanowski – have committed to attending.
