Documentary Film Screening and Panel Discussion
Stewart Udall was the Secretary of the Interior from 1961-1969 during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. He led the way for the most important environmental legislation in US history and spearheaded the expansion of the national park system and wildlife refuges. Udall was a fierce advocate for racial justice, peace, and Native American rights. He was the first public official to warn America about the dangers of climate change and his accomplishments have had a lasting impact on public policy and the modern environmental movement. This documentary is the eye-opening story of one of the most influential public servants whose great legacy deserves wide recognition.
