Review for Street Law, Inc., Silver Spring, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I began working with Street Law as a leader (Board of Directors) and as a volunteer for almost 2 decades. It is a terrific organization, with high-impact programming, and an incredibly valuable "niche" expertise and service offering. Never has Street Law's work been more relevant: we are all concerned about how people from every walk of life and in every community can productively engage in government, find the skills and places for respectful discourse, collaboration, and education, and learn more about how to engage institutional systems to fulfill our common civic duties and become better citizens.

Apart from its important and timely mission, Street Law is unique in its long-standing focus and mission to engage its diverse stakeholders and constituents in a non-partisan manner.

As an organization, Street Law punches well above its weight, by leveraging an outstanding and dedicated staff, a well-run and lean-financed organization, and a terrific network of extremely well-placed volunteers with both expertise and commitment to their cause. When you see how Street Law draws people together to weave meaningful results for those it serves, as well as those who volunteer to serve, it is astounding: I invite you to learn more about our work to teach about civics and law, while advancing justice and civil discourse amongst future leaders; I also invite you to join our community - as a supporter or an engaged volunteer – as we strive to build a better world.
