Cherri Foytlin is an author, journalist, speaker and mother of six. She is active in the movement for clean air and water as a human right, a co-founder of Gulf Change - "a Nationwide Collaborative Effort for Environmental Justice, based in the Gulf Coast," and has walked to Washington D.C. from New Orleans (1,243 miles) to call for action to stop the BP oil disaster.
Recently, she was one of over 1200 people arrested in front of the capital protesting the Keystone XL pipeline, after which she made the call to an estimated 12,000 people for a sustainable future on behalf of generations to come.
Cherri has been a constant voice concerning the health of America's people and ecosystems, and has met repeatedly with agencies and representatives in D.C. regarding the matter. In addition, she has been featured in countless forms of media, and will continue to fight for social and environmental justice in the Gulf, and beyond.
