Quarterly Director Update
This fall, I am thrilled to take over as Executive Director for Toxics Action Center.
I joined Toxics Action Center staff seven years ago and over the last seven years, I have worked on nearly 100 campaigns to prevent and clean up pollution in neighborhoods around New England, make communities more sustainable, and win victories at the local level for a safer and healthier environment.
As Toxics Action Center celebrates our 25th anniversary and reflects on our past, I’m excited and humbled to lead the organization into the future. I believe that our work couldn’t be more important or more relevant.
The reality is that toxic pollution continues to threaten our health and the environment. Decades after Woburn, Love Canal, and Three Mile Island, we’re still experiencing the tragic wake up calls of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the BP oil spill, and the Big Branch coal mine collapse. Versions of these stories play out in a smaller scale right here in New England every day.
Toxics Action Center’s work is based around the idea that these hard times can bring us together to spur political action, and that neighbors banding together and drawing bright lines between right and wrong, will bring us closer to our vision of clean air and clean water, healthy and vibrant communities, and a government that acts responsively and democratically.
I can’t thank you enough for your support over our history and into the future, and I look forward to working with you.
