Connecticut is one of the most racially, ethnically, and economically segregated states in the country. The more separated we are the less we understand each other. Open Communities Alliance is Connecticut-based non-profit organization dedicated to ending residential segregation and ensuring access to affordable housing throughout Connecticut. We are an action-oriented group that focuses on building partnerships, and advocating for meaningful change at the town, state, and federal level.
