Democracy School

Empowering Community

Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) works with community members to help recognise how the structure of law works and for whom – and how communities can begin to make changes through local self-government to protect the places where they live.

Though US based their online DEMOCRACY SCHOOL video series has universal value.

Lectures cover the history of people’s movements and corporate power, and the dramatic organising over the last decade by communities confronting agribusiness, the oil and gas industry, corporate hegemony over worker rights, and others. Included with enrollment in the Democracy School is a 300 plus-page notebook of background reading material.
