Health Equity

Harriet Beecher Stowe Center

2011 - $25,000

In 1852, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin galvanized public sentiment for abolition leading up to the Civil War. And yet today, inequity is still found in many areas of life. That’s why CT Health is giving the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center $25,000 to help host their June 2011 program called the Call to Action: A Conversation on Race and Social Justice. Free to the public, this conversation will feature panels with members of the U.S. Congressional Black Caucus, Connecticut’s legislative community, and other thought leaders. The program will culminate in a Key Document, a blueprint outlining actions addressing the issues including opportunities for individual action, which will be distributed several outlets.
