We do so through science, law and creative media, with a focus on protecting the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.

We Design For Good
We Design For Good has been developed to fill a very specific gap… providing design services specifically to progressive grassroots organizations and progressive candidates working towards social change. Our model is based on doing good with the help from visual communicators on a volunteer basis. Our network of designers may work 9-5 at a regular gig, but want to do more to help make the world a better place. It is all about passion for our work and our world. wedesignforgood.net
We need new civic leadership. But new leaders don’t run for office because the barriers to entry are too high. The people we need now - people of color, women, people with bold ideas - are excluded.
That’s why The Arena activates the next generation of civic leaders who believe in an equitable and inclusive democracy. We build an inclusive and supportive community with a cascading set of supports.
Environment New Jersey
Environment New Jersey is a citizen-based environmental advocacy project of Environment America. They believe there’s something special about New Jersey — something worth protecting and preserving for future generations. Whether it's relaxing at Cape May, birdwatching at the Great Swamp, or hiking through our northern Highlands, New Jersey's natural wonders enrich our lives in countless ways. Yet the places we love and the environmental values so many of us share are too often threatened by powerful industries, shortsighted politicians and more. Defending our environment requires independent research, tough-minded advocacy and spirited grassroots action. Funded by supporters, Environment NJ researches the challenges confronting our environment and educates the public about what’s at stake. Through research reports, news conferences, interviews with reporters, op-ed pieces, letters to the editor and more, they raise awareness of environmental issues and promote sensible solutions. When decisions are being made about our environment, our elected officials hear plenty from the oil companies, developers and other powerful interests. Environment NJ makes the case for our environment and help people make your voice heard, through petitions, emails, letters, phone calls and more, all delivered to the right people just when it matters most.
