July 2015 BPW Speaker
What Is Your Selma?
Heidi Hall earned a B.A. in International Relations in 1983 from Pomona College; an M.A. in International Relations in 1986 from Columbia University; and a second M.A. in 1989 in Public Policy from Rutgers University.
She has worked in the Federal and State governments for over 25 years focused on protecting our environment. As a program manager, international coordinator, and section chief she has always pushed the envelope to create lasting change.
Since she was a child she has also volunteered for non-profit organizations for a variety of causes, and most recently joined the Board of NEO in Nevada County. Her run for Congress in California’s District 1 in 2014 did not end in victory, but opened other possibilities for her interest in social justice.
In 2014, she was invited to join a group of 300 people from around the country to recreate the March from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama to commemorate its 50th Anniversary and she has stayed involved in civil rights issues since.
Heidi is happy to present her photos and talk about her 5-day journey, and invites you to think about the question: “What is Your Selma?”
Newcomers and Guests are always Welcome!
