“As an environmentalist, I am always looking for more ways to protect the environment, but confronting global climate issues can feel overwhelming. 

When I moved to Rhode Island, I found Conservation Law Foundation through friends and family. I knew immediately that supporting CLF was the best way to make a difference. So, I joined CLF’s Champions Club with a monthly gift. It was so easy. 

I love that when you support CLF you know exactly how your donation is being used. They provide timely and thorough updates so you can see which cases and causes CLF is working on and the impact on communities right here in New England.

In 2019, I was honored to join the Rhode Island State Advisory Board. I have learned so much, and in fact in has changed the way I talk about environmentalism. My board service has motivated me to get more involved in local politics and empowered me to make calls to my legislators and participate in town meetings. 

CLF has provided the tools and support to take my activism to the next level and to mobilize my friends and family to do the same. I am so proud of the work that CLF’s advocates do and the tough battles they face in court. I am excited to continue my journey with CLF to create a healthy, thriving New England for all.”
