Video – Helen Keller Tribute Film
YouTube – Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame
The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame pays tribute to Easton resident Helen Keller, an inspirational champion for the disabled. As a lobbyist, fundraiser, speaker, and dedicated advocate for civil rights, she did more to promote and secure equal treatment for those with disabilities than anyone before her, or since. Keller did not limit herself to public speaking and lobbying, however. She was also an influential writer and lent her words to letters and articles that publicly addressed issues of discrimination.
