Sister Pat Daly honored for individual achievement
Sister Pat Daly received the Individual Achievement Award. Daly is a Dominican Sister of Caldwell, New Jersey and Executive Director of the Tri-State Coalition for Responsible Investment, an organization of 40 Roman Catholic dioceses and congregations in the NY metropolitan area. Her work has been critical in forcing General Electric to pay for a clean-up of the Hudson River, getting Ford and GM to exert pressure on their suppliers to improve working conditions, and in moving the agenda of global warming into the priorities of corporate America.
