Back in May, I wrote about DanburyWORKS, a city-wide collaborative dedicated to reducing the poverty rate in Danbury by 30 percent over the next ten years.

Today, the News-Times reports that the collective received a 22,000 dollar grant from Fairfield County’s Community Foundation to assist in their efforts...


A $22,000 grant will benefit a city-wide collaborative that helps lower-income residents.

The money will help with DanburyWORKs’s efforts to support the 50 percent of Danbury residents who live in poverty or struggle to make ends meet, according to a press release. The grant came from Fairfield County’s Community Foundation.


The organization also hopes the grant will encourage national foundations to support the collaborative, which includes as partners United Way of Western Connecticut and Danbury Public School’s Western Connecticut Regional Adult & Continuing Education, among others.

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
