Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF)
A Non-profit, Public Interest Law Firm
- CELDF is spearheading a movement at the local, state, national and international level to establish rights for humans and nature over the systems that control them.
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.
