ELAW works with front line advocates to protect our planet, challenge environmental abuses, and defend human rights in more than 85 countries around the world.
This work often puts grassroots advocates at odds with powerful corporate and government interests, and many ELAW partners endure harassment and attacks for their work protecting communities. ELAW's Defending the Defenders Program works to fight back against attacks on environmental advocates and the communities they represent.
In honor of the Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG event, an anonymous donor is challenging you to GiveBIG and help ELAW increase the impact of our Defending the Defenders Program.
Every dollar we raise will be matched up to $10,000! Your support will help ELAW work with committed environmental and human rights defenders around the world to keep them safe.
To help ELAW meet our $10,000 Challenge, please visit our GiveBIG page or ELAW's website.
I appreciate your confidence in our work, and hope you will GiveBIG and help ELAW meet this challenge!
