Leadership Story

Webinar: Stop the Leaks Campaign

The Switzer Foundation seeks to maximize positive environmental impact through individual and collective activities and leveraged grant resources.

We partially funded 2011 Fellow Sarah Uhl's work with the Clean Air Task Force to reduce methane emissions from the oil and gas industry. Her work helped lead to a major White House initiative.

Watch our June 2014 webinar with Sarah, and read more about how her work influenced policy on this important greenhouse gas issue.
