Review for The Public Interest Law Center, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

I have asked and asked the Public Interest Law Center to help me with a very serious Environmental Justice next to my house. The lot next to me was a contaminated industrial lot with many witnesses to presence of vats of acid and more. There is long history of illegal dumping. Improper and absent good practice building and environmental and public safety procedure in place. Riddled with environmental and other crimes. I have lost everything and my health is several jeopardized due to exposure, yet the project has Philadelphia political protection and the only reason Philcop has to NOT take this case and protect public health is it's own political and funding interests. They have stood by for years allowing my life to fall further and further and allowed these crimes to happen by NEVER doing anything. Now future residents will suffer.

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

The result I have experienced is to be ignored.

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

Get rid of the politics and truly serve the public good.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

nothing

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

none

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Ensure that all citizens of Philadelphia has the protection of Environmental Justice. Make public the connection between toxic exposure and crime and make it part of crime prevention. Help Philadelphia come up out if the dark ages regarding brownfield.

Ways to make it better...

They had looked at and taken my case. My case would have served the greater whole and made a clear statement to the City that these kinds of environmental and public safety laws can not be broken. My case would have protected many and cleaned up much.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Politics and conflict of interest about who they take money from.

One thing I'd also say is that...

You really should take my case. It is excellent and can help change a lot of things that need changing.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
