Our Mission

Our mission is to build sustainable communities by assisting people to assert their right to local self-government and the rights of nature.

We help communities create a more democratic future.

For over 25 years, we have assisted communities to develop first-in-the-nation, groundbreaking laws for worker rights, houseless rights, democratic rights, and the Rights of Nature. We also provide free and low-cost legal services, grassroots organizing, and education support, to thousands of communities and governments facing injustice locally, nationally, and globally.
