TRUST Pennsylvania: Youth Activist Recognizes Our Potential for Environmental Change

Ashley Funk, is 17-year old and from western Pennsylvania. Ashley is many things. She is an identical twin, the founder of Pollution Patrol, a volunteer at the local care home and she loves to sing with her friends around campfires. Ashley is asking our leaders to recognize that environmental destruction is the destruction of human health and in turn realize that we have the potential for change. Ashley has done extensive research in preparation for a career as an environmental engineer and policy maker and she knows that we are not stuck in this society where we have to rely on destructive fossil fuels to power today. We already have the technology to move beyond this.
