Our featured speaker,J Henry Fair, a Charleston-born artist and environmental activist showcased his stunning photography of Earth’s landscapes.
In her remarks, Executive Director Amy Armstrong explained why the evening’s theme could not be more fitting.
“This past year your Lawyers for the Wild Side have been resilient in continuing to bear down against threats to our natural environment and the health and well-being it supports,” she said. “We have spoken out at public hearings and thwarted harmful projects. We have held local, state and federal officials accountable in their deci- sion-making. And of course, we have filed new lawsuits. More importantly, we’ve been successful in those efforts to protect our land, water and communities.”
It was a wonderful and meaningful occasion, and we are so grateful to the many businesses, organizations, volunteers, friends and family who made this event possible and more successful year after year since 2010.
