This program is offered in partnership with S.T.A.R. Stand Together Against Racism (S.T.A.R) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to is to equip residents of New Canaan, CT and neighboring communities with tools and resources to understand systemic racism—including its history, root causes and the structures that perpetuate it— and to proactively advocate for racial equity and bias elimination. We believe that by working together, we can drive transformative and sustainable social change in our community and beyond.


Roy Adams is currently in his 24th year of service as a Police Officer in a small town in CT. He previously served 10 years in the CT Army National Guard. When he’s not serving the public, he loves to spend time with his wife, two sons, 11 and 21 months and his daughter who's 3 years old. Roy has always had a passion for writing. He recently published his first book, titled Which is Which?, an educational children's book about homophones. The idea for the book came about during the nightly ritual of reading to his kids before they go to bed.
