See our LINKS tab to locate citizen groups which focus on CELDF-Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund initiatives: “We live under a system of law and governance that subordinates community and nature’s rights to corporate “rights” and state preemption. And it’s no accident. Our constitution intentionally places the rights of property and commerce over the rights of people, communities, and nature. Decisions about ecosystems—soil, water, the minerals beneath us, even the air we breathe—are largely in the hands of corporations instead of community members who are directly impacted.”  Contact:  Tish O’Dell, Ohio Organizer:
