My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Center For International Environmental Law (CIEL), Washington, DC, USA
This is quite an impressive organization. It never ceases to amaze me how much this small group of highly dedicated professionals is able to accomplish. They focus on using the law to save the environment and to promote human rights around the world. They work directly with communities adversely affected by multinational mega projects (such as gold mines) to ensure a just and environmentally sustainable resolution. They do extensive legal research, collaborate closely with other like-minded organizations, and bring the law to bear at high levels of international negotiation. Their annual report is always eye-popping for both the breadth and depth of their accomplishments and is the reason I remain a sustaining donor.
