"Brownfields: Trends and Strategies in Environmental Justice" will feature national and regional activists in person and via tele-conference.

Evansville, IN, April 19, 2011 --( Featured speaker is renowned activist/trainer Lenny Siegel, Executive Director of California-based Center for Public Environmental Oversight. Regional and national activitists and stakeholders will attend in person and via teleconference.

The Center for Public Environmental Oversight (CPEO) is an organization that promotes and facilitates public participation in the oversight of environmental activities, including but not limited to the remediation of federal facilities, private "Superfund" sites and Brownfields. It was formed in 1992 as CAREER/PRO (the California Economic Recovery and Environmental Restoration Project) by the San Francisco Urban Institute, in response to the large number of military base closures in the San Francisco Bay Area. It draws upon the nearly three decades of work led by CPEO Director Lenny Siegel at the Pacific Studies Center, a non-profit public interest information center in nearby Mountain View, California.

CPEO has its roots in community activism, and it provides support for public advocacy, but it is not a political organization. Its work is based upon six principles: Empowerment, Justice, Education, Communications, Partnership, and Credibility.

Imani Advocates is an Evansville-based human rights organization, whose mission is to empower, educate and encourage stakeholders in the areas of human rights, environmental justice, property rights and civil rights. Lead Investigator, Monica Davis is an author, columnist, and investigator. She served on the environmental justice advisory board for the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, and has worked on land rights and civil rights issues nationwide.
