2020 Community Sentinel Awards for Environmental Stewardship
🗓 December 10, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST
December 10 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm EST
It is a rare occasion that we take time to celebrate grassroots leaders who work tirelessly to protect their communities. We’re all so busy that we rarely slow down to recognize each other in our struggle for environmental justice.
One of the ways that we sustain and build our movement is to celebrate these people and hear their stories.
We have the chance to do just that at the 2020 Community Sentinel Awards for Environmental Stewardship.
Think of it like the Grammys of the environmental justice movement!
I invite you to join us in this virtual celebration on December 10th, 2020 at 7 pm EST. Learn more, and RSVP by going to https://www.fractracker.org/sentinels.
Four inspirational grassroots activists have nominated by their community and selected to receive the award. At the ceremony, you will hear their stories of resistance against the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries.
Against all odds, these individuals have worked with their communities to create healthier, more equitable living conditions.
The event will also feature inspirational speakers, short video presentations, and of course, recognition and celebration of the Sentinel Award winners.
The ceremony will be followed by virtual breakout rooms where attendees can mingle and chat with award recipients.
