The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) works to safeguard the earth – its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends.
NRDC was founded in 1970 by a group of law students and attorneys at the forefront of the environmental movement. Today’s leadership team and board of trustees make sure the organization continues to work to ensure the rights of all people to clean air, clean water, and healthy communities.
NRDC combines the power of more than three million members and online activists with the expertise of scientists, lawyers, and policy advocates across the globe
The mission of East Bay Community Law Center is to promote justice and help build a community that is more secure, productive, healthy, and hopeful by providing legal services, social work support, and policy advocacy that are responsive to the needs of low-income communities and law training that prepares future attorneys and social workers to be skilled and principled advocates who are committed to addressing the causes and conditions of racial and economic injustice and poverty.
The Organization – Justice Through Education & Advocacy
