As we prepare to celebrate our 10th birthday, CONECT–Congregations Organized for a New Connecticut—continues to bring leaders and organizations together to make important social change. During this time of uncertainty and tension on the pandemic, the economy, racial justice, and more, our organizing and collective action work is more important than ever:
Where so often people in Connecticut are isolated by race, faith, class, and geography, CONECT’s members and leaders are Black, white, Latino, and Asian; Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, Unitarian, and Quaker; urban and suburban; poor, working poor, and middle class; native-born and immigrant.
CONECT believes in and invests in developing people from this diverse mix into public leaders who work collectively to negotiate with people in power to make systemic change based on the real concerns of our members.
Working to grow by 8 new member congregations and organizations in the last year, CONECT continues to grow its powerful voice for social justice and the common good.

Individual Donors Boost Our Independent, Grassroots Organizing
CONECT is uniquely positioned to do its work, in part, because we are largely member-funded and accept no government funds. The Friends of CONECT Annual Campaign invites friends, family, and others to support our independent, grassroots organizing. In 2020, the Friends of CONECT campaign raised over $78,505 from 68 donors. In 2021, we hope to raise $100,000 from more than 100 donors. Please help us make this goal a reality!
