Hasion Gaston is the Connecticut Community Organizer. Before joining Community Action Works, Hasion worked closely with Black, Hispanic, and International students in Poughkeepsie, NY to carry out various projects including free transportation to a grocery store, a youth development day, and assisting with the expansion of a nonprofit social enterprise. Transformative change across all sectors is the root of his commitment to humanity, with emphasis on communities still in pursuit of their freedom struggle in the face of the American regime. Hasion‘s investment into the development of local communities extends into his participation as the secretary for the Hartford Greater Together Advisory Committee. Hasion earned a bachelor’s of science in Social Work from Marist College. When he is not working you can find him indulging into a new food or buying a new plant.
