Paying Tribute 

During her speech, Lisa Jackson honored the civil rights icon and discussed the importance of African Americans being environmentally aware. “Dr. Height showed us that this is a place where we as African American women have an opportunity – and a responsibility – to lead. We can lead by demonstrating the importance of environmental issues in our own lives, and showing how they touch our health and our prosperity,” she said.
