Mosiac Coalition

“The Mosaic Coalition will connect and organize diverse communities through educational programs, cultural sharing events, forums, and cultural activities. The Mosaic Coalition will grow into a transformative and powerful tool to widen the reach and effectiveness of advocacy efforts that will transform our state into a more vibrant, inclusive, and equitable place to live”. 


Is an amazing story of a persevering battle to expand educational options in Danbury by creating a charter school. The largely immigrant community is forced to take on powerful politicians, special interests, and the status quo to open a community school for their town.

Together we can transform our state and gain true representation and power

Decisions being made at the local and state level have a direct impact on our families, and we want to have a seat at the table and a voice in the policymaking process.
