The Conservation Law Foundation presented its President’s Award to congressman Joseph P. Kennedy III during its biennial gala at the Moakley Courthouse in Boston last week.
“Representative Kennedy and the group of local heroes we are honoring tonight have devoted their time, energy, and passion to defending our homes, protecting the health of our children, and supporting the vibrancy of our communities,” said Bradley Campbell, president of CLF.
More than 450 people attended the Dec. 3 gala. Guests included congresswoman Katherine Clark, former congressman Chet Atkins, CLF Board of Trustees chair Sara Molyneaux and husband Don Law, gala committee chair Sharon Malt and husband Brad, sponsors Laury and Nancy Coolidge, former CLF president Doug Foy, and corporate sponsor Jay Cashman.
“For decades, the Conservation Law Foundation has answered the urgency of climate change and environmental threats with action and leadership,” said Kennedy, who serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. “When we defeat climate change, it will be because our neighbors united against this common threat.”
