The National Shooting Sports Foundation (lobby group for the gun industry) attacked CONECT and our Do Not Stand Idly By campaign on gun violence with our sister Metro IAF organizations in an op-ed piece in the Feb 20th CT Post — less than one week after the tragic shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. Our rebuttal was published one week later on Feb 27th. Read their attack here and our rebuttal here.
In early 2018, CONECT welcomed three new member congregations:
The Unitarian Society of New Haven (Hamden)
Congregation Beth El (Norwalk)
Greenfield Hill Congregational Church (Fairfield)
We are excited to welcome these institutions to CONECT and look forward to doing good and important work together in the coming year.
