Sustainable CT Coffee Hour: Engaging Community - Compensating for Lived Experience

January 21, 2022 - 10:00 am to 11:00 am

Local governments are working to meaningfully engage constituents in public decisions. An inclusive, equitable approach requires deliberate and authentic outreach to the most affected and marginalized populations. One element of a more comprehensive outreach strategy includes paying people with lived experience in community-based work. Learn about how the City of New Haven’s Food System Policy Division compensates members of its Community Advisory Board and how the Towns of Avon, Manchester, South Windsor, West Hartford, and Wethersfield empowered Sustainable CT to compensate community members to inform their affordable housing plans. We will then facilitate a discussion on how your community might begin exploring fairly compensating community members for their efforts.

Join Sustainable CT for virtual, informal, discussions on the third Friday of each month. We share program updates and resources, explore your questions, and strengthen the network of Sustainable CT champions. These sessions are open to all.
