Day 3 - Of The 2007 EJ Conference Tops It All Off

Conference Coordinator John Rosenthall, left, opened and closed the conference from the podium of the Moot Court. The final day of the conference was just as successful as the first and second days. Moreover, conferees from other parts of the country were treated to three days of perfect weather. Of course, Washington, DC has record pollen levels at this time of year. Everyday was beautiful inside and outside the conference. The cherry trees in the front of the Moot Court were in bloom on both sides of the conference banner. Conference organizers should have held some of those sessions outdoors.

Concurrent Sessions included "Impact of Federal Programs on Local Environmental Justice," Case Studies in Collaborative Problem Solving," Cooperative Approaches in Tri-national Environmental Justice Contexts," "Environmental Education," and the Closing Penary Session - "Emerging Issues in Environmental Justice" and Lifetime Achievement Awards.

And Rosenthall rode off into the sunset. There's a new sheriff in town. Great job John. Everybody else involved too. You know who you are.
