Our Purpose

The Waterbury Strong Community Collective's purpose is to develop and maintain a strong black community within  Waterbury, CT. We seek to do this by educating people on issues that affect them directly and indirectly. We seek to develop leadership so that the black community can adequately represent themselves in all proceedings. Waterbury Strong recognized the need for an assecible community resource within the black community. The Collective was formed to be that resource and inspire the changes necessary to achieve a vibrant community. Waterbury Strong believes that Waterbury, CT will unlock its full potential when its Black community is stronger.
