Through a unique model of legal aid for the environment, Crag provides free and low-cost legal services to clients working on the ground to protect our wild places, clean water, communities and climate.
Bottom Line for Portland
This past year, Crag provided over 8,000 hours of free or low-cost legal services ($2.6 million value) to 40 conservation organizations, community groups, and tribes. Crag defended Portland’s fossil fuel ordinance, supported youth suing government over climate change, and protected thousands of acres of wild lands and old-growth forests.
“The amazing attorneys at Crag have supported our movement, stood up for us, and amplified our voices. Without the thoughtful, strategic thinking, legal expertise and dedication that Crag Law Center has provided, we would not have made it this far.” —Kelsey Juliana, youth plaintiff in climate cases against the state of Oregon and the U.S. government
