Calvin receives Svitlana Kravchenko award


Many congratulations to ELC Legal Director Calvin Sandborn who was awarded Svitlana Kravchenko Environmental Rights Award at this year’s Public Interest Environmental Law Conference in Eugene, Oregon in early March.

The award is given to a person who has “exquisite qualities of both head and heart, mixing academic rigor with spirited activism; and speaking truth to power, while exhibiting kindness toward all. The award winner insists that environmental rights and human rights are indivisible, as did Svitlana Kravchenko, a daughter of Ukraine who became a citizen of America and the entire world.”

Below are a few photos and a link to Calvin’s acceptance speech.
