Advocacy for a Cleaner Earth Series
September 13, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Are you passionate about saving the environment and want to do something more to advocate for it? Learn about advocacy regarding different environmental topics (such as air, water, gas, etc…) from professionals during this season’s lecture series at Delaware Valley University!
This month our speaker will be Maya van Rossum of the Delaware Riverkeeper Network! She will be talking about pipelines and their impact on clean water.
Maya K. van Rossum is the Delaware Riverkeeper and leader for the Delaware Riverkeeper Network. The role of the Delaware Riverkeeper is to give the Delaware River, and the communities that depend upon it and appreciate it, a voice at every decisionmaking table that could provide help or do harm. Delaware Riverkeeper Network has its main office in Bristol, PA and can be found on the web at www.delawareriverkeeper.org. van Rossum, who is skilled as an environmental attorney, strategist, community organizer, facilitator, coalition builder and manager, has led DRN for over 20 years. As Delaware Riverkeeper, she organizes concerned citizens, testifies before state and national governing bodies, oversees DRN litigation, and watches over the Delaware River and all of its tributary streams. Through appointments by governors and agency heads, she has played a role in shaping water quality, quantity and habitat policies and regulation in the Delaware River watershed for nearly two decades.
This program is free and open to the public! We hope to see you and a friend there!
