Mustafa Ali, Senior Vice President of Climate, Environmental Justice & Community Revitalization at the Hip Hop Caucus, will join NDEL as a keynote speaker. Ali resigned from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) last March, after working for 24 years to advance environmental justice in the agency.

“I knew I had to stand up,” Ali said, “because I didn’t see the values and priorities that I work for reflected in our new administration.”
