Our Condolences To Samara Swanston & Danny Newman

Samara Swanston's father in law died on Tuesday two days before the conference and was buried on Friday in Philadelphia. Ms. Swanston was scheduled to make a presentation on her work to preserve and promote Jamaica Bay in New York City at the Friday afternoon session, "Making the Environmental Justice-Land Use Connection in Practice: Strategies that Work." Although she had to cancel her presentation, she still drove to the conference to particpate in the Thursday session.
