Tom Leary, a consultant historian at the Youngstown Steel Museum tells 21 News that Alice Staughton and Alice were passionate activists in Mahoning Valley since the 1970s.
Leary said that Lynd was “certainly an important figure in both the history of the American labor movement and in social injustice generally.” Lynd, a lawyer representing Ecumenical Coalition of the Mahoning Valley, testified before the Ohio House Steel Task Force 1980 that the state might have the ability to help steel workers buy U.S. Steel Corp.’s Ohio Works.
