Vernice has been engaged in the environmental justice movement from the very beginning. She founded one of the first environmental justice non-profits in the country to fight against the harmful impacts of a local waste water treatment plant. Nowadays, she continues to work to see that all communities understand the impacts of environmental factors on the people that call that community home. But, even more, she wants all communities to understand what it means to embrace justice and face the impacts of racial and economic segregation and inequality. She is truly a source of great wisdom and has so much to share.
