Sponsor the Celebration

At this not-to-be-missed Celebration, internationally recognized environmental justice leader, Dr. Mustafa Santiago Ali, the winner of this year's prestigious Frank Hatch Environmental Health Leadership Award, will inspire you.

Now vice president of Environmental Justice, Climate, and Community Revitalization for the National Wildlife Federation, he is a founder of the Office of Environmental Justice at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). After Donald Trump's appointment of then-EPA administrator Scott Pruitt, Dr. Ali's powerful resignation letter made headlines worldwide.

At the Celebration, he'll talk about the intersection of climate work, toxic chemical pollution, and justice for our most vulnerable communities.

And you'll meet and hear from our 2019 Leadership Award Winners:

This year, you’ll help celebrate hard-fought victories to expose and take action on alarming threats to public health.

Don’t miss this important evening, Thursday, October 17.
