Legal Defense Fund

Contra Costa County Courthouse — One of the courts where SPRAWLDEF launches litigation

SPRAWLDEF has a very strong track record using litigation – or sometimes just the threat of legal action – to negate or correct actions that would harm the environment or negatively affect issues valued in the organization’s mission statement.

Our frequent partner in many of these legal actions has been Kelly Smith, an environmental attorney working primarily out of Sacramento.

By carefully selecting issues, cases, and campaigns which maximize environmental impact as well as likelihood of success, SPRAWLDEF has managed to accrue and grow its legal fund to sustain and support our ongoing work. SPRAWLDEF is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. If you like what we are doing, please consider making a tax deductible donation to SPRAWLDEF today.
