Environmental Justice Hall of Fame

John Rosenthall, left, and Ben Chavis, right, announced at the 5th Annual Environmental Justice in America Conference 2011 that they would initiate an Environmental Justice Hall of Fame.

The purpose of the EJ Hall of Fame will be to recognize the work of environmental justice activists.

The announcement was made at a ceremony to honor Hazel Johnson, who died January 12, 2011.

The Hall of Fame will start as a virtual award, with future awardees being honored with portraits at federal agencies and other institutions.
