Kentucky Resources Council (KRC) combines smart policy and legal advocacy to protect the Commonwealth's natural resources and ensure environmental justice for Kentucky's most vulnerable people and communities. Since 1984, KRC has worked to ensure that individuals impacted by environmental decisions have a voice in the policy-making process.
In this podcast, KRC's Kentucky Environmental Leadership Institute (KELI) department provides information for those wanting to better advocate for the places they live and love.
In this second episode of the Kentucky Environmental Leadership Institute, we continue our first season focus of providing information for those attorneys and soon-to-be-attorneys who want to practice environmental law.
We interview Arnita Gadson, Executive Director of the West Jefferson Community Task Force in Louisville, Kentucky. Arnita has been an important player in pushing Louisville towards environmental justice, specifically in advancing the city's air pollution regulations. Her experience working with community members and attorneys alike equips her with a unique ability of how to communicate between these two parties.
Listen now to learn more about Rubbertown, Louisville's Strategic Toxic Air Reduction Program, and how attorneys can work effectively when serving community groups.
In this first episode of the Kentucky Environmental Leadership Institute, we sit down with Liz Edmondson, Kentucky Resources Council Policy Coordinator, to learn about her professional trajectory, why she knew environmental law was the path for her, and her advice for those wanting to pursue an environmental career of their own.
