What does Sierra Club mean to me?  Communication.  In 2010  I was awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize for my work exposing the polluting practices of factory farms, but it is because of Michigan Chapter that I received this great honor.

The Sierra Club has supported me throughout my long fight to tell the truth about these operations, which aren’t farms at all. It has given me a voice, a platform to communicate to the world. To be able to say, this is wrong. This needs to change. I’m forever grateful for that.
