ELAW (quote from web: The Environmental Law Alliance Worldwide (ELAW) helps communities speak out for clean air, clean water, and a healthy planet. We are a global alliance of attorneys, scientists and other advocates collaborating across borders to promote grassroots efforts to build a sustainable, just future. ELAW advocates, working in their home countries, know best how to protect the environment. By giving our partners the legal and scientific support they need, ELAW helps challenge environmental abuses and builds a worldwide corps of skilled, committed advocates working to protect ecosystems and communities for generations to come.)
They published their annual highlights on specific outcomes over the year. It’s just amazing to see what impact this small Eugene non-profit can create through their world-wide network of environmental activists, many who risk life and livelihood every day to push for environmental justice.
The impact this network of activists is able to have is truly outstanding and all of it from the bottom up / grass roots and in many cases by people who actually live in the community they are working to protect. Just awe-inspiring to think not only of what they accomplish but what they risk to do so … for all of us.
If ELAW is not on your local non-profit list for observation and contribution … it’s worth a look, imho. I actively promote ELAW as an organization worth supporting.
