L4GG CLIMATE CHANGE UPDATE: 9.13.18

L4GG just launched our Climate Change Resources site, where we're posting the state profiles and other resources prepared by more than 200 L4GG volunteer lawyers in support of the Sierra Club's "Ready for 100" campaign to help municipalities shift to 100% renewable energy. So far, we've posted 3 state profiles, and plan to post another 10 - 15 state profiles by the end of 2018.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT L4GG'S CLIMATE CHANGE WORK:

"L4GG’s coordination of volunteers to produce legal research for cities will be a game-changer for our Ready for 100 Program. L4GG’s work will help cities across the country navigate complicated energy policy and expedite their shift to 100% renewable energy." — Jodie Van Horn, Director, Sierra Club "Ready for 100" Campaign

"L4GG’s ability to coordinate such a large group of legal volunteers nationwide fills a deep niche that has been lacking; cities want to take action, but often do not have the resources to create tangible, realistic pathways to renewable energy." — Antha Williams, Head of Environmental Programs, Bloomberg Philanthropies

L4GG would like to thank Jillian Phoenix Blanchard, L4GG Climate Change Program Lead, for her hard work and leadership on this front.

One-year anniversary of James Comey's firing

One-year anniversary of James Comey's firing

We urge every American to remain vigilant. Refuse to allow President Trump to obstruct the Special Counsel's investigation. Demand a complete accounting of any foreign interference with the 2016 election. Insist that your representatives in Congress take action to preserve the rule of law. The future of our democracy is at stake, and each of us must fight to protect it.

The 33-year Trump/Russia timeline we spent 3 months building

Our team of volunteer lawyers and developers ended up working on this project for three months — researching, verifying, coding, designing, uploading files, proofreading — to get to the point where we could launch a publicly viewable timeline showing connections between President Trump, his advisors, and Russia from 1984 to present.
