Herring Organizes EJ 2007 for Department of Agriculture

Geraldine Herring is organizing and coordinating the State of Environmental Justice in America 2007 Conference for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. She is sending the emails, organizing the meetings and conference calls, making the phone calls, arranging the tours, coordinating the panelists, distributing the papers and every other function needed to pull off a sucessful conference. And of course she is doing it with style.

Federal employees shy away from the spotlight (send us a picture to post-she probably will not), preferring to be important functioning cogs in the vehicle instead of the drivers. Whether this is due to policy considerations or simply personal choices, it is unusual in an EJ sector that has sometimes been obsessively self reverential. All glory to God, but shine a little sunshine on Ms. Herring. Her work is making this conference bloom like a beautiful field of daffodils. Thanks.
