Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Environmentalist, attorney, and professor Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has consistently fought to protect our planet. As chief prosecuting attorney for Hudson Riverkeeper, he led the fight to help restore the Hudson River, resulting in the spawning of over 100 Waterkeeper organizations across the globe and Time magazine recognizing him as one of their "Heroes for the Planet" in 2010. On March 13 Kennedy will give a speech at the SUNY New Paltz Lecture Center on the role that natural resources play in our work, health, and identity as Americans. Part of the Distinguished Speaker Series, the lecture begins at 7:30pm and will be followed by a dessert reception and book signing. Tickets are $10. Newpaltz.edu/speakerseries/.
