Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on "Our Environmental Destiny"
February 2006

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. will address the topic "Our Environmental Destiny" at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday March 8th at 8pm. The lecture, part of UF's Public Interest Law Conference, is free and open to the public.

Kennedy is the Chief Prosecuting Attorney for Riverkeeper, a group whose mission is to safeguard the ecological integrity of the Hudson River, its tributaries, and the watershed of New York City (protecting the city's drinking water supply) by tracking down and stopping polluters. He also serves as Senior Attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council and as President of the Waterkeeper Alliance.

He is also a strong advocate for clean air issues (especially relevant for our area with our coal fired power plant and expanding cement plants) and how air pollution impacts those with asthma. At Pace University School of Law, he is a Clinical Professor and Supervising Attorney at the Environmental Litigation Clinic in White Plains, New York. The talk is cosponsored by Accent, the UF speakers bureau.
