Promoting Women in Government

Kate Hogan, Warren County (NY) District Attorney, will speak at the February 10, 2007 meeting of the Adirondack Branch AAUW. Kate has worked to establish a grass-roots network called Communities that Care and created a child advocacy center that was fully funded through grants from the state. She has served on the Commission on the Jury and serves a statewide task force on children’s justice issues. Kate will speak about being a woman in politics who also is a wife and mother of three children, and will address some criminal justice issues that often are of great interest to women, such as domestic violence, sexual assault and Megan's law. Plan to join us!

Kate will speak at 11:30 a.m. at the Chinatown Restaurant, 994 Route 9, Queensbury, NY. Lunch will follow at 12:15 pm. For more information, call Mary King, (518) 494-4833.
