Fighting Unfairness in our Legal Systems

At 9:15 a.m., join us and longtime environmentalist Ronna Loerch of Democracy Awakening as she tells us about that organization’s local work, and that of their partner organization Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF), a fee-free environmental law firm.

It’s time for us to come together and claim a democracy where every voice is heard and every vote counts equally — a democracy that works for all of us. About 200 communities across the nation are standing up to legal systems and corporations that permit environmental harm and negate our rights. These communities are adopting local ordinances that go against ‘the rules.’

We will watch a short section of the CELDF documentary “We the People 2.0,” and Ronna will tell us more about the actions that people are taking across the nation, and how we can join in.
