We are now accepting nominations for the 2022 Community Sentinel Awards for Environmental Stewardship!
In collaboration with our sponsors and partners, the award is presented to multiple recipients at a virtual reception before fellow activists, allies and conspirators, all of whom are working towards a healthier and more just future. Each awardee receives $1,000 and is recognized at the Community Sentinel Awards ceremony, held this year on Thursday, December 8, 2022.
To do this, we need you to nominate the advocates that inspire you by November 4, 2022.
About the Community Sentinel Award for Environmental Stewardship
The impacts of the oil and gas industry are palpable across the United States: farms and forests are carved open by dangerous pipelines, communities are invaded with fracked wells, towns are choked by petrochemical emissions, streams are littered with throwaway plastics, states in every region are plagued by extreme weather and a rapidly changing climate. Though environmental injustices abound, we continue to find hope in the environmental advocates and community activists working to document, report, and confront fossil fuel harms and injustice in their communities.
To honor these environmental heroes, FracTracker Alliance created the Community Sentinel Award for Environmental Stewardship, now in its eighth year, the annual award ceremony celebrates individuals whose noble actions exemplify the transformative power of committed and engaged people. In collaboration with our sponsors and partners, the award is presented to multiple recipients at a virtual reception before fellow activists, allies and conspirators, all of whom are working towards a healthier and more just future.
Each awardee receives $1,000 and is recognized at the Community Sentinel Awards ceremony, held this year on Thursday, December 8, 2022. We also welcome our partners and community members to submit the names of activists who have passed away over the last year, so that we may honor their lives and their work during the Legacy of Heroes presentation during the awards ceremony.
