Presenter: Veronica Kyle is the Outreach Director for Faith in Place, a non-profit in Chicago, Illinois. For the past 20 years, Faith in Place has helped to empower over 1,000 places of worship and protect their land, air, and water. Veronica has made it her duty to create a more diverse table of citizens to discuss taking care of the earth. People of color have often been left out of discussions that deal with environmental sustainability, something that Veronica seeks to change. Kyle has created programs that diversified the discussion as well as brought about cross-cultural engagement. In 2013, Kyle was identified as the 2013 Audubon/Toyota Green Fellow. In 2014, she was recognized as a Northern American Association of Environmental Educators Fellow. Currently, she is sitting in her fourth term as an appointed Environmental Justice Commissioner of the State of Illinois. She is a speaker and facilitator for issues of eco-justice, community organizing, and, in particular, eco-womanism. She is co-founder of the EcoWomanist Institute.
