Janice's passing is a great loss to the Michigan environmental movement. She
did much for her community, and the larger community, particularly in the
environmental justice movement.
We were lucky to have her as long as we did.
Perhaps the larger environmental organizations could petition the university
to award her the diploma, posthumously?

This is so very sad. What a loss to the movement for environmental justice,
not only here in Michigan, but nationally.  Janice was truly dedicated to
environmental justice, a great leader, and an inspiration to many.

Thanks Alex for your beautiful words. Janice will be deeply missed.

	I'm saddened to report the news that Flint environmental
	justice activist-extraordinaire Janice O'Neal died yesterday
	at McLaren Hospital after a long illness.

	Janice was a key local-state-national environmental justice movement
	leader.    She quarterbacked the massive showing of opposition
	in her Northeast Flint community to the Genesee Power demolition
	waste incinerator.....and won several concessions to limit the
amount
	of hazardous materials that were planned for processing and disposal
	in that plant.   More recently she fought an extended battle
	against a proposal for a poorly regulated automobile shredding
operation
	directly adjacent to her home community.

	Janice was a Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University
	of Michigan in Flint.   She worked closely with and was well known
to a
	variety of environmental/social justice organizations, including the

	National Lawyers Guild-Guild Law Center in Detroit, Sierra Club,
Ecology
	Center of Ann Arbor, Flint's
	St. Francis Prayer Center and others.   She was also well known
nationally
	in the environmental justice community and to EPA's environmental
justice
	office.

	Janice was an inspiring and electrifying orator  and community
	organizing political strategist who fostered leadership,
participation and
	activism
	in others with her drive and determination.   We will miss her
deeply.
