KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

MARI COPENY is most well known as “Little Miss Flint” - she first gained national attention in 2016, when at the age of 8, the LA Times published a letter she wrote to President Obama challenging him to visit Flint, Michigan. The letter sparked an urgent dialogue around the clean water crisis and environmental racism that was impossible to ignore, ultimately leading to meetings with Presidents Obama and Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and spotlights by TIME Magazine, The Washington Post, NBC News, and VICE.

SPECIAL GUESTS

RENEE REYES is the reigning Miss Stamford 2021 and uses her platform as a way to spread awareness about alopecia and to change today’s beauty standards for the better. Reyes was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, but she currently lives in Stamford, Connecticut. Inspired by her mother’s past as a beauty pageant contestant, Reyes entered Miss Teen Connecticut 2015, where she was a semi-finalist. Then, in 2018, she started to notice the first signs of her alopecia. She hopes to win Miss USA and Miss Universe, which would give her an even grander platform to spread alopecia awareness. Reyes is looking to establish her own non-profit volunteer organization for alopecia awareness.

SENATOR PAT MILLER, a Stamford native, was elected to the state senate for the 27th district in a special election in 2021. She had previously served in the General Assembly from 2008 to 2021 representing Stamford's 145th Assembly District. Through her tenure in the legislature, Sen. Miller has been a strong advocate for education reforms that help address and improve Connecticut’s education opportunity gap. She has learned and seen firsthand the disproportion of students’ achievements and the role that literacy plays in their success or failure. She believes giving teachers the right tools to help them address disparities is a step in the right direction.
