Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School student Robert K. Hoggard participated in a panel discussion with Rochester, NY radio host Evan Dawson on "Connections," WXXI's mid-day show, on April 12, 2016.
The topic for the hour-long show was Democratic Socialism. Robert, a Bernie Sanders supporter, shared insights from a theological and social justice point of view, discussing the tenets of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The spirited panel included Karen Vitale, Rochester City resident and Co-Chair of the Rochester Area Democratic Socialists, Larry Knox, Political/Communications Coordinator for Service Employees International Union Local 1199 and former Brighton Town Supervisor Sandra Frankel.
