Keynote speaker Jacklyn Velasquez is a 2017 Vermont Law School graduate and member of the Big Pine Paiute Tribe of Owens Valley, California. Jacklyn’s passion for environmental and cultural justice were strengthened while working with her Tribe to secure their rights to water in a fight with powerful interests including the City of Los Angeles.
Jackie will apply her skills and experience to strengthen the position of Indigenous Nations threatened by Wisconsin’s regulatory failures to protect clean and abundant water. Her work builds on the Petition for Corrective action MEA filed with the EPA on behalf of 16 Wisconsin citizens requesting federal oversight to bring Wisconsin back in to compliance with the Clean Water Act.
Midwest Environmental Advocates is honored to host Jacklyn for her two-year fellowship dedicated to our shared clean water future. Please join us to learn about the project and to welcome Jacklyn.
