About Speaker:

Beverly Kerr,
Associate Director
Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League

Beverly Kerr is the Associate Director of The Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League, a regional, community-based, non-profit organization with the principles of earth stewardship, environmental democracy, social justice, and community empowerment. This grassroots organization has been working in rural and disadvantaged areas across the Southeast for nearly 30 years.   BREDL helps each community group solve pressing local problems by developing a citizens' campaign with goals, strategies, activities, and assessments.

Beverly lives in Alamance County, NC and is also the owner of a Christian Summer Day camp and afterschool center.  In 2007, when she discovered an asphalt plant had been given a permit to operate near her home and child care business, she began volunteer work to protect her home, business and community.  She helped form a neighborhood group called Be Safe Not Sorry and with BREDL’s help, the asphalt plant was stopped and a county wide polluting industries ordinance was adopted that blocked polluters.  Beverly has been with BREDL ever since.  Her work is focused on pollution prevention from big dirty industries such as nuclear power, coal fired power, hydrofracking, mega-dumps, toxic and radioactive waste sites, medical waste incineration, biomass, and of course, asphalt plants.

The registration deadline for this event has passed.
