The Great Divide: An invitation

Connecticut has the widest wealth gap in the nation.

For some, this just makes grabbing the brass ring a little more challenging. For others, seeking a better future for the next generation is becoming an elusive dream. And while some try to climb, many of our neighbors are struggling not to fall.

We are seeking readers to document how people define living comfortably in 2012, and to share their experiences all along the great divide.

If you’re interested in sharing your story, contact us at or call (203) 330-6248.
