Lynn Henning: Fighting Against CAFOs



A family farmer from rural Michigan, Lynn Henning exposed the egregious polluting practices of CAFOs (concentrated animal feeding operations), gaining the attention of the federal EPA and prompting state regulators to issue hundreds of citations for water quality violations.

Her actions have not gone unnoticed, however, by the opposition, who have threatened and intimidated Lynn and her family in a number of ways. (Watch the video to find out.)

Because of her brave efforts, she received the 2010 Goldman Environmental Prize, the world’s largest award honoring grassroots environmentalists.
