Stadiums and their teams are an expression of a community’s values and cultural spirit. The best stadiums are designed to build multigenerational prosperity and civic pride for entire cities, states, and regions.

We believe Dillon Stadium should be recognized as a public park and school infrastructure with the goal of building community health and wealth.

Our public interest advocacy exposes Dillon Stadium as a monument to the political corruption, social injustice, and ruling class capitalism crushing Connecticut.

Hartford Times Logo

The Hartford Times is a legacy media brand styled as “a champion of reform and an advocate of the people.”

Our work revives the Hartford Times as a civics platform to improve Connecticut’s access to information, community connectivity, and media justice through consistent solution oriented engagement, inspirational story-telling, and a shared sense of self-determination.

Our goal is to develop a sustainable, equitable, non-partisan, non-profit multimedia platform promoting community-driven, multigenerational narratives and open, people-centered dialogue, with an aim toward providing historically underrepresented and underserved people access to our democracy.
