2020 was a year of global challenges unmatched in recent memory. Communities worldwide faced political repression as civic spaces shrunk, wildfires blazed in several countries as the effects of the climate crisis intensified, and civil unrest fomented worldwide—all while a deadly pandemic claimed millions of lives.
If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that we can and will forge ahead. Like the communities with whom we proudly partner, who inspire us every day, EarthRights is highly resilient. We remain unwavering in our conviction that through leveraging the power of law and the power of people, we can challenge corporate and government abuse, help communities fight for their lives and livelihoods, avoid the worst effects of the climate crisis, and secure earth rights for current and future generations.
Whether you’ve stood by us for years or you’ve just joined our community, we are grateful to all our donors, partners, staff, board members,
and alumni who have supported us throughout these challenges. We could not have done without you. Thank you so much. -Ka Hsaw Wa
