This conversation will feature a panel of speakers including Tom Harbinson of the Shelton Conservation Commission, Al Tyma of Ryan & Tyma LLP, Steve Studer of Berchem, Moses & Devlin PC. It will be moderated by Terry Jones of Jones Family Farms and will feature remarks by Jimmy Tickey, Planning & Zoning Commissioner.

The Shelton Democrats first Community Conversation took place in March and focused on Building a Community of Respect: Why Words Still Matter, which was presented in partnership with the Anti-Defamation League. This conversation discussed the rise of hate speech, intolerance, and the role community organizations and citizens play in standing together against hate.
