Personal Story

Clean air, clean water, the world’s beauty—these are things worth working really hard to have and keep around.

The joy of being outdoors under the sky, moving in the fresh air and smelling the trees and grass is something I've been lucky to have in my life, and is a joy I hope people everywhere, now and in the future, will be able to experience.

It is a privilege and daily source of satisfaction to be a part of Earthjustice and to do the work that will help preserve our existing resources, ensure that communities everywhere have access to these resources, and guarantee that generations to come will be able to enjoy what we enjoy now.
