We help communities and groups like yours.

We are not a typical environmental organization. We assist communities to develop first-in-the-nation, groundbreaking laws to protect rights – including worker, environmental, and democratic rights, and rights of nature. CELDF provides free and low cost legal services, grassroots organizing, and education, to communities, states, and countries facing injustice. We help them to assert their rights to fight the harms they face. Learn more about how we work, or call us now at: 717-498-0054.

  • Add Your Voice to Support Grant Township’s Fight for Home Rule

The 700 residents living in Grant Township didn’t think it was such a good idea and have been fighting diligently to establish rights for their community and environment to block this injection well.
