Voices for Earth Justice is in the community, part of the community, and brings love and education to the community. To see the connections that have been made and the love between people is both humbling and inspiring.
Of course, like most people that work with children, I love animals. That they are disappearing by our negligence, greed, etc. has me worried, but I am older. Children love animals almost innately. I think Earth Justice is powerful because they write from the point of view of the animal. They say it is a big bear hug when you work with them. That works for me and all of the children I work with.
