Dec 10: Community Sentinel Awards

Join Fractracker and the Halt the Harm Network for the 6th Annual Community Sentinel Awards for Environmental Stewardship, an event that celebrates those who address the root causes of environmental injustice in our communities. 

It is a far too rare occasion that we have moments to connect and celebrate grassroots leaders who work tirelessly to protect their communities. One of the ways that we sustain and build our movement is to celebrate these people and hear their stories. 

Learn more and RSVP by following this link.

Four inspirational grassroots activists have been selected to receive the award, and at the ceremony, you will hear their stories of resistance against the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries. 

The event will feature a musical introduction, inspirational speakers, short video presentations, and of course, recognition and celebration of the Sentinel Award winners. The ceremony will be followed by virtual breakout rooms where attendees can mingle, congratulate, and chat directly with award recipients.

You can learn more, and get your tickets here

Tickets are pay-what-you-can, and all are welcome. I hope you can join me and many others across the country to hear the stories of the Community Sentinels. 

Congratulations to this year’s Sentinel Award Winners! 

  • Edith Abeyta (North Braddock, Pennsylvania)

  • Yvette Arellano (Houston, Texas)

  • Theresa Landrum (Detroit, Michigan, 48217)

  • Brenda Jo McManama (Fairmont, West Virginia)

Against all odds, these individuals have worked with their communities to create healthier, more equitable living conditions. 

Hope to see you there!
