I have been a monthly contributor for several years. I appreciate the work that Equal Justice USA does to uphold the dignity of each individual. They support victims, incarcerated people, and those who work in the justice/legal system with the goal of justice, healing, and systemic reform.

Review for Fistula Foundation, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I love supporting the Fistula Foundation because they are able to transform lives of women and their families in a very effective way. The surgical repair of obstetric fistula gives each woman the ability to be part of her community and to help others.

Review for Community Environmental Defense Council Inc, Ithaca, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I live in Vestal NY, which is right on the PA border. We have had a front row seat to the negative environmental and social impacts that unconventional gas drilling using high volume hydraulic fracturing ("fracking" for short) has caused there and want to keep this destructive industry from invading NY. Community Environmental Defense Council has been instrumental in getting bans or moratoria using home rule and zoning/police powers in place in many municipalities. Helen and David Slottje are the two lawyers who have presented to town boards and helped them craft these bans/moratoria, which have been upheld by our state courts.

Community Environmental Defense Council is a non-profit public interest law firm that does not charge for its services. I donate to them because they are doing great work for the townspeople and I want them to be able to keep on doing what they are doing to protect us. It has been my privilege to hear both Helen and David speak in my town. I admire their expertise and their tenacity in their work.

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

Try to add another attorney to help out with the workload.
