Erin Boggs, Glastonbury resident and executive director of Open Communities Alliance, said her civil rights organization promotes access to housing choice, and showed CT maps that clearly show that job opportunities in the state are higher where people of color do not live.

"Glastonbury, as you can see, is one of the highest areas of opportunity in the state," Boggs said. "Seventy-three percent of blacks and Latinos are living in the two lowest of the five opportunity categories, compared to only 26-percent of whites, and 36-percent of Asians. We are highly segregated here in Connecticut."
