Sunflower Alliance organizer Janet Johnson is one of this year’s recipients of Sustainable Contra Costa’s 15th Annual Leadership in Sustainability Award, which recognizes her “outstanding commitment and leadership in making Contra Costa communities healthy, beautiful, clean and resilient.” Janet is chiefly known for her tireless and effective grassroots organizing on behalf of the successful No Coal in Richmond campaign, her work with the Richmond Shoreline Alliance, and her productive tenure on the Richmond/San Pablo AB 617 Community Air Monitoring Steering Committee.
Congratulations, Janet! We are incredibly proud of you and your indefatigable commitment to environmental justice. You set an extremely high bar for activists everywhere.
Come join us in celebrating Janet at the Gala Awards Ceremony in Pleasant Hill on September 19. You can purchase tickets here.
