Congratulations to our very own Veronica Kyle for being selected to join Mayor-elect Lori Lightfoot’s Environmental Transition Committee! This is a great opportunity to ensure environmental justice is a key priority for this administration.
In her work she seeks to bring people to the table that are often not involved in conversations around Earth care, including African American, Latino, and affluent suburb communities. She has done this work by creating award-winning programs that bring about diversity and cross-cultural community engagement.
Veronica’s work has been nationally recognized as the 2013 Audubon/Toyota Green Fellow and a 2014 Northern America Association of Environmental Educators Fellow. She is currently serving a 4th term as an appointed Environmental Justice Commissioner for the State of Illinois.
