I think folks on the group already know about me because of the message I
posted. I'm Cynthia Valencic, Vice President for Programs, with the Legal
Environmental Assistance Foundation, Inc. (LEAF). LEAF is a regional public
interest environmental law firm serving people in Alabama, Florida and
Georgia. Our involvement with brownfields stems from our long-time (18
years) of work with disenfrachised, low-income and communities of color. We
helped improve (a little bit) a brownfields bill during the 1997 legislative
session that could have defined how all contaminated sites in FL are cleaned
up. We are now working with communities to educate them about brownfields
and risk assessment, as well as often serving as the lone voice for these
communities and the "public interest" in the brownfields frenzy.
