2016 Christine Green Award Honorees

This year we are especially thrilled to award two stellar individuals with the Christine Green Award for their commitment to protecting our state’s natural resources and the health of our communities.

Cameron BurdenCameron Burden

Cameron first volunteered with Michigan LCV in 2014 when he helped collect pledge cards in support of the Clean Power Plan. Since then he has been a committed volunteer, lending his free time to help protect Michigan’s land, air, and water. Although Cameron had never done door-knocking or phone-banking prior to his experience with Michigan LCV, he jumped in head first to this incredibly important work. In the two years since he started volunteering, Cameron has made countless phone calls and conversation to educate voters on clean energy policy legislation in Lansing, recruited for multiple Michigan LCV field events including a town hall on energy policy, and knocked on hundreds of doors in the successful efforts to elect Senator Gary Peters, Representative-elect Abdullah Hammoud, and Representative-elect Darrin Camilleri. With Southeast Michigan serving as a battleground for elections in 2016, Cameron was integral to successfully electing two new conservation champions to the Michigan House. In total, Cameron has completed over 60 volunteer shifts and helped Michigan LCV build relationships with members and volunteers across the state.

George DavisGeorge Davis

George Davis is the Michigan LCV Board Secretary and has served on the board since 2014; in addition to serving with other environmental organizations across Michigan, including Board President of the Southwest Detroit Environmental Vision, Co-Chair of the Detroit Climate Action Committee Business and Industry Work Group, and member of the Energy and Environment Committee of the Detroit Regional Chamber. George has actively committed to connecting talented and passionate individuals with Michigan LCV’s work–including recruitment of new members, staff, and board members. With the Flint Water Crisis being a critical issue in 2016, George served on the Steering Committee of our Fourth Annual Innovation in Conservation Gala honoring many leaders committed to protecting our environment including Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha. George makes calls day after day to ensure that the Detroit community knows that Michigan LCV is at the forefront of the fight to protect what matters to the health and future of the state he loves and calls home.
