Synopsis:

REMEMBERING CONNIE HOGARTH LEGACY: THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES. Connie Hogarth was involved in so many progressive organizations and critical issues that it would be nearly impossible to list them all. She had an amazing gift of bringing people together on varied issues. She saw connections between issues that others saw as separate. We will talk about how Connie was able to “connect the dots” and find common ground between groups who thought they had little in common. That's a real legacy! Connie was a founder of WESPAC, the Westchester People's Action Coalition, and epitomized "Think Globally, Act Locally". She worked on Environmental Justice issues decades before that term or its predecessor, Environmental Racism, was coined. Connie was solutions-oriented, goals-oriented, and a mentor and inspiration to thousands of activists over six decades. Her influence was felt in organizations such as Clearwater; Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Coalition; the SHAD Alliance, which she helped found; and "Parents Concerned About Indian Point", who were interveners in the 1984 NRC hearings. WESPAC continues her legacy.
