2023 BRANFORD MLK SPEAKER - VANESSA R. AVERY
United States Attorney for Connecticut
Join us on Jan. 16 for a lecture on 'Learning to Live Together' by Vanessa Roberts Avery, who in 2022 became the first African American female U.S. Attorney for the state of Connecticut. A New Haven native and Yale graduate, Avery is known for her work advancing civil rights and her ability to bridge the gap between minority communities and law enforcement.
Avery's appointment, by President Joe Biden, was "an incredible and historic moment for Connecticut, for our legal profession, and our justice system," said Connecticut Attorney General William Tong.
The event will be moderated by News Channel 8 anchor Keith Kountz. Proceeds from the lecture benefit the Branford Food Pantry, Feed Branford Kids, Fuel Assistance, and more. Only 500 tickets available. Buy now before we sell out!
