Lou Leonard - In Brief

Lou Lenoard began his career working on endangered species and Native American water rights issues for the U.S. Department of the Interior. This was followed by several years in California tackling legal challenges surrounding energy and water development at the local, state and federal level. He joined WWF in November 2008 after serving as an environmental policy analyst and field organizer for the "Obama for America" campaign. As an environmental lawyer and climate policy expert, you can imagine the list of "to-do's" he has for the new administration.

Purpose of the Extreme Green Gala

With proceeds from the Extreme Green Gala on Friday, October 9, we'll be able to extend our renovations to do major improvements like better insulation, new windows and new efficient appliances. We expect to cut their energy bills by 20-30% with these improvements -- but we need your help to do it.

Please, take part in the cause and invite your friends to join you at the Extreme Green Gala, the pre-party to the DC Green Festival! There will be live music, organic food and great nationally recognized environmental leaders (hold your hats!). But best of all, your ticket proceeds will help fight poverty and global warming pollution at the same time.

Don't miss your spot... Purchase your ticket today!
