Dep. Campaign Director Liz Butler wins "40 Under 40 Award"

I'm proud to announce that our own Deputy Campaign Director Liz Butler has been honored with a 40 Under 40 Award from the New Leaders Council. Liz is recognized among a diverse group of young leaders ranging from doctors, elected officials, inspiring community organizers, nonprofit and policy leaders. The group includes winners from our friends at the Sierra Club, Change.org, and the Center for American Progress, among others. There are very few honors for progressive leaders under 40 who, as the New Leader’s Society states, “exemplify the spirit of progressive political entrepreneurship.” Liz definitely fits the bill.

You may see Liz’s name in 1Sky's emails and read the occasional blog from her, but you should also know how long Liz has been part of the progressive movement. She has more than 15 years of experience with groups such as ForestEthics, American Lands Alliance, the Missouri Public Interest Research Group, and is a graduate of Green Corps' Environmental Leadership Training Program. Among many other duties, she builds bridges in the field and on the Hill with other progressives, greens, environmental and climate organizations, and political figures. Her experience and commitment make her an invaluable leader for our staff and the climate movement as we chart the political path to a clean energy future.

We’re very proud of Liz for her accomplishments. Congratulations to her and all the "40 Under 40" winners for their efforts to build a progressive future.
