Listen to CELDF’s radio program – Democracy Matters – every Thursday at 10am Eastern/7am Pacific at KYRS, Spokane’s Thin Air Community Radio.  You can also podcast the show each week at, click on Democracy Matters.

This week, Ben Price, the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund’s Project Director, talks with us about Pittsburgh’s introduction of an ordinance which would ban corporations from gas drilling within the city. We also discuss the launch of the new Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature.

Each week on Democracy Matters we bring you stories from the frontlines as communities bring rights-based organizing to their communities – asserting their local self-governing authority to make the critical decisions that affect their lives and their community.

If you are interested in having Democracy Matters broadcast on your local community radio station, give them a call and let them know.
