Local Survey Explores Community Well-Being; Saud Anwar Discusses Refugee Life in Jordan

DataHaven, a New Haven-based nonprofit organization, recently completed the nation’s largest survey on community well-being. This hour, we take a look at the results and consider what they reveal about health, happiness, and quality of life in Connecticut. 

Later, we check in with South Windsor town council member and former mayor Saud Anwar. Last month, he visited the Kingdom of Jordan, where he met with Syrian refugees. He tells us what he saw and learned about the situation there.

We also get an update on local refugee resettlement efforts -- including some ambitious goals for 2016.

GUESTS:

  • Mark Abraham - Executive Director of DataHaven; W.K. Kellogg Foundation Racial Equity Fellow
  • Anita Chandra - Director of RAND Justice, Infrastructure, and Environment
  • Dr. Saud Anwar - South Windsor town council member; Connecticut's first Muslim mayor
  • Chris George - Executive Director of Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services in New Haven
