Prior to joining The Connecticut Project, Brigith served as a Community Organizer with Make the Road Connecticut, where she led a local campaign for improving health services and supported a state-wide campaign for expansion of the Medicaid program regardless of immigration status.  

Why do you do “the work?”    

When thinking about the reasons as to why organize, I imagine a room of individuals who hold institutionalized power making decisions on behalf of those in the neighborhood and community. 

Throughout my work I am committed to shifting that lens to not only have representatives be the ones making decisions but ensuring those who are most impacted are present in the space and voices are being heard.  

What are some specific places or things you love in Connecticut?    

I love to continue to explore and invest in my own city, the City of Hartford. Some of my favorite places are Semilla Cafe for a tasty coconut latte, Pan del Sinai for a quick breakfast sandwich, and Vista Alegre for delicious Peruvian food.
