LOG LUNCH FRIDAY: Join Alanah Keddell-Tuckey, Director, Office of Environmental Justice, New York State Dept of Environmental Conservation (DEC), for a talk about Environmental & Climate Justice issues in New York.
Alanah Keddell-Tuckey is the Director for DEC’s Office of Environmental Justice. In her position, she and her team focus on assuring that environmental and climate justice are considered in all aspects of the environmental process and that DEC and state agency programs consider the histories, circumstances, and needs of residents living in historically overburdened and underfunded parts of the state. In addition to her work for the Office of Environmental Justice, Alanah has served as the Deputy Director of Legislative Affairs and worked on diversity, inclusion, education and public outreach with the Office of Communication Services.
Alanah came to state service after several years working as a Government Relations Associate with the Adirondack Council, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the Adirondack Park. Prior to this, she served as the Government Affairs Coordinator for the Empire State Pride Agenda.
Alanah holds a Juris Doctorate from Albany Law School, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from SUNY Binghamton with a minor in Sociology.
