Bard CEP Alum Helps Lead Sierra Club's Successful L.A. Beyond Coal Campaign

Evan Gillespie MS '09 has successfully lead the Sierra Club's Beyond Coal Los Angeles campaign to force it's electric utility out of coal-fired power. 

L.A.'s Department of Water and Power will be coal-free within 12 years. Evan has been leading the campaign for the past four-years and said that the DWP's plan will be a "road map for other utilities seeking to get off coal". 

Evan has a lot to celebrate -- he became a father to baby Henry in November! Congratulations to the Gillespie family and on the continued success of the Sierra Club’s environmental policy endeavors!
