    Name: Alex and Lena Casper Memorial Lecture - Erin Brockovich
    Date: March 9, 2023
    Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST
    Event Description:
    Ever since Julia Roberts portrayed her in the Oscar-winning Hollywood movie of the same name, Erin Brockovich has been a byword for grit, determination, and dogged persistence. The film turned an unknown legal researcher into a 20th century icon by showcasing her role behind the largest medical settlement lawsuit in history. Brockovich’s exhaustive investigation uncovered that Pacific Gas & Electric had been poisoning the town of Hinkley, California's water for more than 30 years. The resulting 1996 tort injury settlement was the largest of its kind: $333 million in damages to more than 600 residents. 

    Brockovich realized she could use her recognition to spread positive messages of empowerment. Her subsequent success as a New York Times bestselling author, inspirational speaker, and activist has encouraged countless others to stand up and make a difference in the world.
