Pride month is upon us – and I find it disheartening how little recognition there is in our town. Having been in surrounding towns recently, I have observed several homes and businesses celebrating our LGBTQ+ colleagues, friends, and loved ones. It brings me joy seeing how towns have rallied around the message of inclusion and belonging, particularly as a model for our children, who I sincerely hope do a better job than previous generations of demonstrating love, respect, and understanding of one another, regardless of their differences.

Dear Fellow New Canaanites, 

While strolling through our town on two recent mornings, I wrote with sidewalk chalk, purchased at a local toy store, the following phrases: “Save Gaza”, “Save Rafah”, “All Eyes on Rafah”. 

I wrote these messages in daylight, at time when many folks are running their errands, hoping to invite conversations about the ongoing civilian catastrophe and US involvement in what many around the world view is a deeply asymmetric response to October 7th. Especially with the latest bombardment of Rafah, I felt compelled to find a small way to raise awareness for the tragic and preventable loss of life there. 

Throughout the morning I had several people thank me for what I was doing. Some people were less thankful, but respectfully asked for explanations about my actions.

I’m writing to you all as a concerned mother, neighbor, and resident of New Canaan. Allowing a parking garage to be constructed in a residential wetlands zone in new Canaan is opening Pandora’s box for further development and expansion. This structure goes against all of what the New Canaan POCD stands for.
