Last week, League of Conservation Voters (LCV) held its annual Capital Dinner in Washington, DC. The event featured a keynote speech by President Obama, remarks by Senator Tim Kaine (VA) and award presentations including Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi awarding Congressman Henry Waxman with the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Virginia League of Conservation Voters being presented with the John Hunting Winning for the Environment Award. Check out some of the pictures from the great night!
