SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.  (June 9, 2016) – The California League of Conservation Voters—the nonpartisan political action arm of California’s environmental movement—will honor four of California’s leading environmental champions at its annual Environmental Leadership Awards in San Francisco tonight.

“CLCV is proud to honor these three remarkable women and one outstanding organization, for their contributions to California’s environmental movement. They all inspire us all to work for social and environmental progress, for the health and well-being of our communities, and for the future of our planet,” said CLCV chief executive officer Sarah Rose.

The event reception begins at 6:00 p.m. and the program at 7:00 p.m. at the Julia Morgan Ballroom, Merchants Exchange Building, 465 California Street, San Francisco.

CLCV’s Environmental Leadership Awards recipients include:

“From the fields of the Central Valley, to the churches of Oakland; from the garages of Silicon Valley, to the halls of Congress, tonight’s honorees use their unique talents to build power for California’s environmental and social justice movements. As legends in their own time, they represent the best of our collective efforts to build a sustainable and equitable future for California’s families, our neighborhoods and our planet, and we are honored to be able to recognize their work tonight,” said Rose.
