Advocacy Makes a Difference

You can make a difference. I receive many e-mails this time of year from organizations that I have supported, some with money others by simply speaking out. Nothing is more rewarding than knowing that you did in fact make a difference for the planet, it's wildlife and wild places. So please when you receive those e-mails asking you to speak out, essentially to take a stand consider the good you can do by just getting involved. It only takes a minute to speak up and it can make a world of difference.
Thank you to all those who have visited my website over the past year. I hope you have enjoyed your visits and will return often in the coming year.

Dear Ray,
I want to say thank you.
This Thanksgiving, as we consider all that we are thankful for, our supporters are at the top of our list. We deeply appreciate your decision to stand with us as we use the power of law to protect the environment and our communities.
Your active engagement in our work inspires us to continue fighting to preserve our natural heritage, protect our health and promote a clean energy future. Thank you for believing in us—we won’t let you down.
Together, we have accomplished so much during the past 12 months...
  • You helped secure protection for more than 45 million acres of roadless national forests from destructive logging and development
  • You helped force the retirement of dirty, coal-burning power plants, which generate more than a third of the nation’s global warming pollution
  • Your advocacy helped save communities from the toxic practice of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” for natural gas
  • You helped defeat attacks on the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act and preserved pollution standards for new power plants
  • Your support prevented destructive oil and gas development in iconic regions such as the Alaskan Arctic
We couldn’t have won these victories without you—thank you.
We know that the coming year will bring new challenges and new opportunities, but some things will remain unchanged. Our legal team will continue to take on big-impact litigation to secure the health of the earth. And our staff on Capitol Hill will continue fighting to protect our courtroom victories from an anti-environment Congress.
We continue to be grateful for your crucial partnership in this work.
From all of us at Earthjustice, thank you.
