The TV mogul has been confirmed to participate in UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability gala by introducing newly-announced honoree Amariyanna Copeny, also known as Mari or “Little Miss Flint.” The 14-year-old is being feted for her environmental advocacy and efforts to get clean, safe water in the wake of an unprecedented crisis in her hometown of Flint, Michigan. Notably, Copeny wrote a letter to then-President Barack Obama and he not only responded but visited the city and met with Copeny in 2016.
