A.  US Coalition for the International Criminal Court. As a staff member of for Citizens for Global Solutions in 1994-95, I was able to organize and fund a staff position to establish this very successful Coalition.

B. Steel Industry Heritage Task Force - which evolved into the current RIVERS OF STEEL NATIONAL INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE AREA in SW Pennsylvania. While on staff with the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation, I organized a multi-county, public-private coalition to preserve and interpret the history of the iron and steel industry.  Partners included:

  • The Western Pennsylvania Historical Society
  • USX
  • The Regional Industrial Development Corporation
  • Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation
  • Academic Historians
  • Archives of Industrial Society (University of Pittsburgh)
  • Numerous small historical societies in SW PA mill towns
  • and others

Through the work of Senator John Heinz, $3 million were appropriated for the National Park Service to conduct studies necessary for the project to become a NPS Heritage Area. It succeeded.

C. While on staff at the NM Environmental Law Center, I organized the following coalitions that involved state government and private sector actors:

  • The NM Environment and Health Coalition
  • The NM Mercury Reduction Task Force
  • The NM Precautionary Principle Task Force
