Bill Somplatsky-Jarman

BILL SOMPLATSKY-JARMAN was recently awarded the William Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award for Leadership in Environmental Justice by Presbyterians for Earth Care. His work in caring for God’s creation dates back to 1988 when he was asked to carry the first staff portfolio on Environmental Justice for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). “It has been a labor of love. Courses at the then Yale School of Forestry on the History of Conservation and Sociology of Natural Resources during my years at YDS helped plant a seed.” Now, Bill is the coordinator for Social Witness Ministries in the PCUSA Compassion, Peace, and Justice Ministry that includes environmental ministries.
