Our Environmental Destiny An Evening with Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

University Park Campus Town and Gown (TGF)

665 Exposition Boulevard, Los Angeles, 90089


Join us for a special evening with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. In a passionate and eloquent speech, Kennedy will reflect on the role of natural resources in our work, health and identity as Americans, reminding us of our responsibility to preserve our planet for future generations. Robert F. Kennedys reputation as a resolute defender of the environment stems from a litany of successful legal actions. He was named one of Time magazines Heroes for the Planet for helping Riverkeeper lead the fight to restore the Hudson River. The groups achievement helped spawn more than 200 Waterkeeper organizations across the globe. Kennedy has worked on environmental issues across the Americas and has assisted several indigenous tribes in Latin America and Canada in successfully negotiating treaties protecting traditional homelands. The New York City watershed agreement, which Kennedy negotiated on behalf of environmentalists and New York City watershed consumers, is regarded as an international model in stakeholder consensus negotiations and sustainable development. Kennedy serves as senior attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council, chief prosecuting attorney for Hudson Riverkeeper and president of Waterkeeper Alliance. He is also a clinical professor and supervising attorney at Pace University School of Laws Environmental Litigation Clinic and a co-host of Ring of Fire on Air America Radio. Earlier in his career, he served as assistant district attorney in New York City.
