A Harvard Law Today piece mentioned the start-up grant that Climate Defense Project won:
With the goal of providing a stable climate for future generations, Climate Defense Project — co-founded by Kelsey Skaggs ’16, Alice Cherry ’16 and Ted Hamilton ’16 — aims to fill a gap in existing efforts by enlisting the legal system in the work of the climate movement. CDP’s mission focuses on supporting and defending climate activists; pursuing climate impact litigation; and connecting attorneys with communities and campaigns. In addition to providing trainings and supporting individuals in climate-related legal actions, they have established a website with a list of resources, including a guide for activists and attorneys, published op-eds, and interviews.
The project’s co-founders each worked on environmental issues while at HLS, with a focus on issues of environmental and climate justice. They formed Climate Defense Project while students at Harvard Law School.
