Robert F. Kennedy Jr. swings by Atlanta to talk about the Chattahoochee and the importance of enforcing environmental laws
Known for his outspoken (and at times controversial) views on the environment, politics, and vaccines, Kennedy, the president of the Waterkeeper Alliance, stopped by Atlanta last weekend to urge greater environmental advocacy at SweetWater 420 Fest.
This week, river, lake, and water activists from all over the country will flow to a common delta in Pine Mountain, Georgia, for the Waterkeeper Alliance’s annual conference, hosted by the Chattahoochee and Flint riverkeepers. The event will close out Saturday night with a keynote address from Alliance president Robert F. Kennedy Jr., son of the late Attorney General, U.S. Senator, and presidential candidate, who has made his own name as an environmental crusader. As chief prosecuting attorney for the Hudson Riverkeeper in New York, he helped preserve that urban artery. And in advance of his Georgia speech, Atlanta magazine posed a few questions about our region’s own embattled and unsung waterway.
