Review for Friends of the Earth, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Friends of the Earth protect our planet and all of us who call it home.

Standing up to Donald Trump and his administration protects our planet -- and all of us.

Fighting for the future of our food system protects our planet -- and all of us.

Defending our environmental protections from Big Oil’s cronies in Congress protects our planet -- and all of us.

I love Mother Earth. I love all of us who love Mother Earth.

Review for International Rescue Committee, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In my capacity as an attorney, I was contacted by a Somali woman who, with her family, was resettled in Salt Lake City by the International Rescue Committee ("IRC"). With support from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (the "Mormons") and other denominations, the IRC has resettled Somalis, Cambodians and refugees from other countries here. I often read about these refugee communities in The Salt Lake Tribune, where the IRC is credited for its compassionate and determined efforts to rescue people caught in life-and-death circumstances around the world.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Touring church facility where donated clothing is sorted for shipment to African nations served by the IRC.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None. The IRC is doing excellent work, and hopefully al Shabab will allow the IRC to provide relief in Somalia.

Role:  Volunteer & Consulted with IRC client regarding family law problem.
