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. We have worked with and continue to be available to work with communities in the Lehigh Valley, conducting Democracy Schools, helping to draft ordinances, and serving as consultants.
