Activist Balances Environment, Farms And Armenia
By Alin K. Gregorian
SOMERVILLE, Mass. — For many, the thought of Hirair Hovnanian or Virginia Ohanian and Willy Nelson or John Mellencamp can in no way be connected. However, all of the above are linked by one woman: Carolyn Mugar.
Mugar is able to navigate the world of Armenian-Amer ican activism with true, blue liberal causes with aplomb.
“I’ve worked with a lot of different people and cultures in my life. It’s not hard to exist with different people,” she said. “I find is fascinating.”
“The experience of working with non-profits has been helpful,” Mugar said. “One helps the other.”
