To all of you who were able to attend Global
Community Monitor’s 10th Anniversary celebration - it was an incredible
To those who couldn’t make it, please take this
opportunity to help us celebrate and continue our work for the next decade.
We need you support and no amount is too small. Even a $10 gift
when added together with donations from our supporters adds up!
You can help us continue to assist grassroots leaders
around the world. Donate here.
Also, if you did not have a chance to make it to the
event, check it out this incredible video from our community partners-watch here.
Not only was it a very successful celebration but it
was also an awe-inspiring opportunity to connect with other activists working
for Environmental Justice around the country. Hilton Kelley, 2011 Goldman
Prize Winner from Port Arthur, Texas shared stories from his community and from
his fight for fenceline communities.
Connections were made, and victories shared from
community organizers to policy advocates-those that have build a web of support
for the grassroots Environmental Justice movement.
We’d also like to extend gratitude to Tres Mexican
Kitchen for the delicious food and drinks. Special thanks to our flamenco
guitarist, Carl Nagin, for creating a warm and inviting ambiance. Sincere
thanks to our host committee and event sponsors who provided the much needed
resources and dedication in ensuring a great event.
Last, but certainly not least, thank you to our Event
Committee including our Event Intern, Sarah Price. We could not have
pulled such a great event off without you!
Looking forward to the next 10 years.
All the best,
