Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Environment, Law & Jurisprudence

Mission: Earth Law Center works to transform the law to recognize, honor, and protect nature’s inherent rights to exist, thrive and evolve.

Programs: Earth Law is the idea that ecosystems have the right to exist, thrive, and evolve—and that nature should be able to defend its rights in court, just like people can.We do this by building a force of advocates for nature's rights at local and international levels. We partner with local organizations create new laws that recognize rights of rivers, oceans, coastal and land ecosystems.

I think what they do is worthy and will have impact in the environmental field. I am personally interested in being part of it because I think in Ecuador, where I live, we need to articulate actions between NGOs and Universities for the communities to get real help and impact, so I would like to join ELC to help to find cooperation with universities. When I mentioned this to them they liked the idea, and now we will keep in touch to find out the way to make it possible. I think that is great.

Earth Law Center (ELC) is a top rated charity because:
ELC is committed to moving the ball forward via frontline initiatives with local partners.
Communications as a program area is much needed in this space.
The volunteer and intern model they have created would be great for other small non profits to model after.

The Earth Law Center is making a difference in saving our environment. ELC has been battling locally, nationally and internationally for several years to move the world away from an exclusively 'human-centric' point of view to recognize the rights of nature to thrive, survive and evolve. By educating the public and lawmakers, ELC is helping us protect the environment that we all rely upon for life itself. ELC has helped pass municipal ordinances and also international proclamations through the United Nations to protect our natural communities and biodiverse ecosystems. I have been a volunteer for ELC for three years because I believe in the mission and the organization.

I’ve been volunteering with ELC for about 4 months now and am thoroughly enjoying the work and the people. As part of the digital marketing team, I get the opportunity to work with talented, smart, and kind individuals who are all willing to donate their time to help this organization reach a boarder audience. There’s a great sense of community within the team even though we all work from different corners of the globe. If you’re interested in supporting a great non profit who is working to secure rights for nature and take on environmental challenges, be sure to check out ELC.

It has been an amazing experience to work with and learn from Earth Law. Darlene, Michelle and Constanza are so dedicated, hard-working, passionate and insightful about creating legal rights for our oceans and marine life. It is inspiring and rewarding to work with people who are doing incredible work, but are still so grateful, accessible and helpful to their volunteers. It has been a pleasure volunteering for them thus far, and I look forward to our continued, meaningful work!
