Doug Bogen of Barrington has been an environmental organizer and advocate for more than three decades, focusing on grassroots, citizen advocacy efforts and community-based solutions to our most challenging environmental issues. He is currently director of Seacoast Anti-Pollution League in Exeter, focused on opposing the re-licensing of the Seabrook nuclear power plant, promoting renewable power alternatives – particularly offshore wind – and watch-dogging the clean up of superfund toxic waste sites at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. He also serves as program manager with Seacoast Area Renewable Energy Initiative in Portsmouth and is a founding member of Seacoast Peace Response and the Portsmouth-Severodvinsk Connection. He previously worked with Clean Water Action’s NH program from 1991 to 2009, serving as state program director for most of that time. He worked on issues of combating climate disruption, toxic contamination, particularly mercury and military waste, drinking water protection, cleaning up the state’s old fossil-fueled power plants and coastal water quality. He lives in Barrington and has been a resident of New Hampshire’s Seacoast region for three decades. Bogen holds a masters degree in Science and Environmental Education from Cornell University.
SueAnn DeVito of Rochester grew up outside of Buffalo, NY and fell in love with nature through family camping trips all over the US and Canada, as well as activities with Girl Scouts. She attended SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, NY where she obtained a BS in Forest Biology. She moved to New Hampshire to attend graduate school in Forest Genetics. She left that program in the 1980’s to work in the field of computer science and raise a family. SueAnn has lived in Rochester, NH since 1985, and she has never lost her love of the natural world and her concern for the environment. In 2007 she entered the Environmental Management program at the Harvard University Extension where she completed her Master’s degree in 2013. SueAnn blogs about environmental issues and is passionate about environmental justice and fighting climate change.
Giselle Hart of Newmarket has been an active student organizer since her first semester at the University of New Hampshire. Entering school as a music major, she quickly became engrossed in social justice and environmental activism with the UNH Student Environmental Action Coalition (SEAC) and the Peace and Justice League (PJL). In addition to working on abolishing the death penalty in New Hampshire, tar sands in New England, zero waste, and single-use plastic pollution on campus, Giselle also founded the second wave of the UNH Divestment campaign in the spring of her sophomore year. She looks forward to a lifetime working towards racial, gender, economic, LGBTQ+, political, and environmental justice.
Cody Hussey of Dover Internet Freedom Fighter. Fresh food addict. Environmental defender. Spread intelligent technology to those who ponder the possibilities.
Stephanie Marshall of Exeter was inspired to take an active role in climate justice after hearing 350.org founder Bill McKibben speak five years ago. She brings to 350NH her work experience in organizational development and systemic change. Her inspiration for staying active comes from many sources including Joanna Macy’s “Work that Reconnects” and her faith community at the Unitarian Universalist church in Exeter, and the desire to leave a legacy of a better world for the next generations.

He currently works for the Northeast Resource Recovery Association in Epsom, NH and previously worked as an intern for the Division of Solid Waste in Westchester County, NY. After finishing his Bachelor’s degree at UConn, Michael spent over two years in Romania serving as a Peace Corps volunteer, where he learned a great deal about the need for environmental awareness in the developing world and beyond.

In his spare time, he enjoys playing in the outdoors – kayaking, backpacking, skiing and snowshoeing.
