My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Center For International Environmental Law (CIEL), Washington, DC, USA
Two years ago, CIEL produced some research reports that helped me fundamentally redefine the plastic crisis our world is facing. CIEL's reports are focused and groundbreaking, and the organization is very adept at putting them in the right hands and in front of the right faces - and supporting their non-profit partners to do the same - to drive policy change and action. For over a year, I was working closely with some of CIEL's team while in coalition with them to move international policy toward more governance and regulation on plastics, and their experience with accomplishing policy objectives in a movement-oriented, inclusive, and justice-focused way was very impressive and inspiring. As I met more people from the organization and basically fell in love with each of them, both for their professional abilities and their generosity of spirit (there must be something in the water that everyone who works at CIEL is a genuinely kind person). I'm honored to be rolling up my sleeves with this awesome team of humans working to support the safety and rights of other humans.
