Immigrants to Connecticut make a significant economic impact on the state and beyond, according to speakers at an event organized by the immigrant advocacy group Building One Community.
Anka Badurina, the executive director of Building One Community, was eager to see the community coming together for the conversation earlier this week in Stamford.
“Our intention is to change the narrative, especially such negative rhetoric about the borders,” Badurina said. “It's about to start focusing on the positive aspects of what immigrants really bring to this country.”
