Dear Friends,

Award-winning ELAW partner Thuli Brilliance Makama has arrived! Thuli hails from Swaziland and is our latest ELAW Fellow.

Thuli has collaborated with ELAW for many years. Her commitment to community rights landed her a Goldman Environmental Prize.

"I am here to make a contribution to Swaziland and the African continent," says Thuli.

During her ELAW Fellowship, Thuli will collaborate with ELAW staff and partners around the world, build skills, and boost ELAW's work in Africa.

"Thuli is energized to strengthen ties with lawyers throughout Africa, and build connections between them and between the various networks that she participates in. I am thrilled to have her here with us at ELAW and excited about the work she plans to do." says Jen Gleason, ELAW Staff Attorney.

ELAW is honored to have Thuli with us here in Eugene. We look forward to connecting her with our local community and colleagues in the Northwest.
