WILTON — While many people may believe the United States is having a “moment” since the death of George Floyd, state Attorney General William Tong said this. “The nation is having a much overdue conversation, but I think there’s a temptation right now to call this a moment and an opportunity, and it is a moment and opportunity, but it’s not the moment and the opportunity because we’ve had these before: Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray, Emmet Till.”
Tong joined Stephanie Thomas, the Democratic candidate running for the 143rd district seat in the state House of Representatives, in a video discussion Thursday evening on “Racial Justice in Connecticut,” organized by the College Democrats of Connecticut. The event drew students from Trinity, Yale, UConn and other schools.
