Crag Law Center
Through a unique model of legal aid for the environment, Crag provides free and low-cost legal services to communities, environmental groups and tribes who are fighting to protect our wild places, clean water, communities and climate.
Bottom Line for Portland
Over the past year, Crag provided 10,000 hours of free and low-cost legal services ($4 million value) to conservation groups, communities and tribes. We are fighting for communities most impacted by pollution, environmental degradation and climate change, and taking on corporations who value profits over the health of our planet and people. We are protecting old-growth forests and watersheds, helping local residents stand up for their communities, and stopping fossil fuel projects around Portland and throughout the Pacific Northwest. We mentor the next generation of conservation and environmental justice advocates by providing training and professional development to individuals from high school to law school.
“What inspires me most about Crag are the incredible and brilliant people that work there and how they use their passion and energy to help protect the environment. At Crag, I learned how to practice law. Because of them, I have some of the tools in the toolkit I need to take on environmental fights and industries that are harming the planet.”
- K’asha Bernard, Staff Attorney/Legal Organizer, Center for International Environmental Law, Crag Board Member and former Crag Legal Fellow
