Yale Community Connect Response to Our Times
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the deep inequalities that Yale Community Connect has endeavored to address from its inception. Too many people in our country of opportunity are being denied opportunities, dignity, health, and well-being because of the shade of their skin, level of formal education, and lack of economic resources. These hard realities go back hundreds of years. The instant access to video has made them undeniable to all.
Because of inequality, those who have resources and opportunities can best start to help those who don’t by listening, asking how we can be supportive, and creating conversations of trust that enable honest discussion and meaningful action.
Yale Community Connect has encouraged participants to build ongoing relationships with communities, to listen to what communities identify as their needs, to support communities in meeting their needs and growing stronger, and to face challenges together through ongoing respectful conversation and invested action.
