The granddaughter of former Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson will lead a panel discussion on "How Vital is Corporate Environmental Responsibility?"
Julia Craighill, an architect in Chevy Chase, Md., will open the program at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Jackson Center, 305 E. Fourth St., Jamestown, with reflections on her grandfather's experiences in Chautauqua County and surrounding areas. Jackson grew up in Spring Creek, Pa., and Western New York and practiced law in Jamestown.
Craighill also will introduce a panel of three experts to explore business opportunities and the risks inherent in environmental sustainability: Laurie Counsel, environmental relations director at Cummins Inc. of Indianapolis, Ind.; Allison Robinson, director of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Environmental Initiatives; and Matthew L. Wolford, former regional counsel and assistant counsel for the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection who is in private practice.
A reception will be held at 6 p.m. The program, which is free, is part of "Greenup Jamestown," a series of community events leading up to Earth Day, which seeks to collaborate and cooperate with regional organizations that support conservation and sustainability.
