This month Envirorun DC is going virtual! First, we invite you to lace up your running shoes for a virtual 5k at your own pace anytime between Sunday morning, May 17, and Tuesday afternoon, May 19.
Be sure to join Envirorun’s Strava Club (instructions below) and use the hashtag #Envirorun5k to record your run on our Leaderboard.
After running your 5k, don’t forget to tune into a livestreamed speaker presentation. This month we’re joining the Tuesday Talks speaker series for a (socially distanced) conversation on May 19 at 7pm with The Washington Post senior correspondent and Pulitzer Prize winner Juliet Eilperin concerning “Where the Environment and Politics Intersect.”
She will be interviewed by Charles Fishman, an award-winning journalist, historian and author of four bestselling books. Fishman is one of the most forceful and inspiring public voices on water and water issues in the US.
Register here to RSVP and receive a link to the livestream. Participants will also be able to pose questions for the Q+A session to follow using the comments section of the YouTube livestream. The free Tuesday Talks speaker series is held monthly and features fascinating speakers from Cleveland Park and Woodley Park. They are brought to you by Cleveland Park Main Street and Cleveland & Woodley Park Village, in collaboration with the DC Public Library. For more info on scheduled speakers, click here.
About Juliet Eilperin
Juliet Eilperin has spent 15 years covering the environment at The Washington Post, a job that has taken her from the halls of Congress to a seat on Air Force One and the wilds of the Alaskan tundra. She will reflect on how policy, politics and science intersect when it comes to climate change, public lands, and a range of other issues that shape our planet. Juliet Eilperin has worked on The Washington Post’s national desk for more than two decades, covering the White House, Congress, the environment and a host of domestic and international policy matters.
She now serves as the Post’s senior national affairs correspondent, focusing on the environment and other domestic issues that shed light on how President Trump is transforming the federal government and many policies enacted under former President Obama. Earlier this month Juliet received a Pulitzer Prize along with colleagues at The Washington Post for the 2°C Beyond the Limit series covering climate change impacts already being experienced today.
