The Community Environmental
Legal Defense Fund is working with communities in the United States and in countries around the world on grassroots organizing, public education and outreach, research, and legislative drafting - assisting people, NGOs, elected representatives, and government officials
to craft and adopt new laws that change the status of natural communities
and ecosystems from being regarded as property under the law to being
recognized as rights-bearing entities.
Through this work, the Legal Defense Fund has assisted more than two dozen communities in the U.S., and assisted the Constitutional Assembly of Ecuador, to put in place a new paradigm to protect nature - a paradigm based on rights.
