The CT Department of Motor Vehicles is working on a pilot program to reduce wait times. CT DMV Commissioner, Michael Bzdyra, explains this program and other DMV improvements with Eric Clemons from Infinity Hall on Comcast Newsmakers.
In 2015 more than 7,000 youth participated in the Boys and Girl Clubs of Hartford's services and programs, which are designed to provide the skills they need for future success. Club President and CEO, Sam Gray, discusses the programs with Eric Clemons.
There are 1,000 mentors working with an equal number of children this year, and Nutmeg Big Brothers-Big Sisters has created 65,000 relationships between "bigs" and "littles" over its 50 year history. President and CEO, Andy Fleischmann explains.
America's political landscape continues to change. With the Asian American and Pacific Islander community expected to reach more than 20 million people by the end of this year, overcoming voting barriers is critical for this population. With Christine Chen, Executive Director of the Asian and Pacific Islander American (APIA) Vote.
In discussing voting barriers, Chen stated, "As we're celebrating the 50th Anniversary... of the Voting Rights Act, we understand that piece of legislation also eventually allowed language assistance."

It's been 50 years since the enactment of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Spencer Overton, President of The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies discusses the state of the minority vote a half century later, and its impact on the future of race, politics and voting rights.
Overton commented, "Voting is more racially polarized now than it was back in the 1960's... in terms of party voting and then also if you look into local elections... race is the most significant factor."
