Sidra M. Vitale

As you know from recent blogs, we will be highlighting our Jammin' awardees leading up to the event tomorrow. Today’s selected honoree is Sidra M. Vitale, Esq.

Sidra Vitale is an attorney on a one-year fellowship at the New England School of Law, where she graduated cum laude in 2007. She is tirelessly working with ACE’s Legal Counsel as pro bono co-counsel for the Brockton and West Bridgewater residents fighting to stop the construction of a fossil fuel power plant in Brockton.

The proposed power plant would add hundreds of tons of pollution every year to an environmental justice community. With Sidra’s outstanding support, the residents of Brockton and West Bridgewater are standing up for the right to clean air and healthy communities.
