About Us

The Mesothelioma Veterans Center was created to provide information and assistance to veterans regarding treatment, clinical trials, and VA benefits for veterans suffering from asbestos illnesses. The MVC was founded by retired Navy LCDR Carl Jewett. Commander Jewett is a VA-accredited claims agent and has helped hundreds of veterans get approved for their VA benefits after developing mesothelioma or asbestos related lung cancer from their asbestos exposure in the military.

About Earth Day Network

The first Earth Day, on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed. Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network (EDN) works with over 22,000 partners in 192 countries to broaden, diversify and mobilize the environmental movement. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.

But Earth Day Network does not stop there.

All of EDN’s activities, whether greening schools or promoting green economic policies at home and abroad, inform and energize populations so they will act to secure a healthy future for themselves and their children. With its partner organizations, EDN provides civic engagement opportunities at the local, state, national and global levels. At every turn, EDN works to broaden the definition of "environment" to include all issues that affect our health, our communities and our environment, such as greening deteriorated schools, creating green jobs and investment, and promoting activism to stop air and water pollution.

Over the last 40 years, EDN has executed successful environmental campaigns on issues ranging climate change and drinking water to voter registration and saving the whale. EDN is a recognized leader in creating civically–oriented innovative programs with partners outside of the environmental movement to tackle new challenges. Our core programs today focus on:

Creating dialogue with religions and other disciplines to find comprehensive solutions to environmental problems.

The Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale is the largest international multi-religious project of its kind. With its conferences, publications, and website it is engaged in exploring religious worldviews, texts, and ethics in order to broaden understanding of the complex nature of current environmental concerns.

The Forum recognizes that religions need to be in dialogue with other disciplines (e.g., science, ethics, economics, education, public policy, gender) in seeking comprehensive solutions to both global and local environmental problems.

Institutional support for the Forum includes: The Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, Yale Divinity School, Yale Center for Bioethics, the V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation, the Germeshausen Foundation, the Kendeda Sustainability Fund, and the Thomas Berry Foundation.

The Initiative for Renewable Energy in Architecture (re-ARCH)

The Initiative for Renewable Energy in Architecture (reARCH) is a collaboration which brings together the educational and technological expertise of the School of Architecture at the College of Design and the Center for Sustainable Building Research at the University of Minnesota, the American Institute of Architects Minnesota in cooperation with the Committee on the Environment, the Green Institute, the Minnesota Renewable Energy Society, and the Midwest Renewable Energy Association.

re-ARCH’s primary initiative is to provide hands-on knowledge, resources, and tools that design professionals need to integrate renewable energy, assess its economic costs, and determine its environmental benefits. The goal of re-ARCH is to substantially increase the knowledge and technical abilities of Minnesota design professionals in the field of renewable energy. re-ARCH is supported by a grant from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA).

Funded in part by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA)
