The Story

EVENT DATE: Aug 27, 2011

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Aug 20, 2011

Please join us August 27th, 2011 at the Colorado State University ballroom to honor Prof. Judith Kimerling, the 4th Annual Albertson Medal Winner! Kimerling will receive this year's medal for her defense of the Amazon rainforest and the human communities that depend on it for their culture and survival.

 

In 1989, she moved to Ecuador and worked with indigenous organizations in the Amazon Rainforest to document the environmental and social impacts of oil development there. Her findings and photographs first placed concerns about the impact of oil production on indigenous peoples and the environment in tropical forests on the international environmental and human rights policy agendas. Her book Amazon Crude was called “the Silent Spring of Ecuador” by The New York Times. In the U.S., it prompted a prominent class action lawsuit, Aguinda v. Texaco, Inc.

 

The award gala honoring Prof. Kimerling August 27th at CSU Lory Student Center Ballroom will include speeches, award presentation, live music, dinner, and silent auction. Village Earth’s mission is reflected in the choice of one of the gala’s menu items. The buffalo steaks being served will come from the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Village Earth is helping that community in their work to reintroduce buffalo herds as part of a sustainable business enterprise.

 

All proceeds from this event go to support Village Earth, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
