Good news! I have been nominated for the sixth annual Community Sentinel Award for Environmental Stewardship! Four individuals will be presented the award at the December 10th virtual awards ceremony. (See details below) The four award recipients will be announced the week of November 16th. The Community Sentinel Award honors those who address the root causes of environmental injustice in the United States, with a strong focus on racial justice in the face of oil, gas, and petrochemical activity.
Eligibility: The nominees will be judged based on the following criteria:
works to reduce the harms associated with oil, gas, and petrochemical development;
works within a framework of environmental justice* and anti-racism;
addresses the root cause of environmental injustice, not only the symptoms; and is based in the United States, and works primarily on US-based issues. Award Ceremony and Reception: The 2020 Community Sentinel Award program will be held the evening of Thursday, December 10th. Tickets are pay-what-you-can! You can get tickets here. The awards ceremony will feature inspirational speakers, short video presentations, and of course, recognition and celebration of the Sentinel Award winners. The ceremony will be followed by optional virtual breakout rooms where attendees can mingle and give words of support to the award recipients. More details on the evening's program will be sent to all ticket holders as we get closer to the date. This event is hosted by FracTracker Alliance and Halt the Harm Network.
