June 2013 – Alaska Brief – Newsletter


I want to personally thank you for your tremendous support of Trustees for Alaska by sharing the latest edition of our electronic newsletter, Legal Brief.

As you read on you will meet our Summer 2013 Legal Interns. Once again, we are fortunate to attract such an amazing group of bright and eager youth who are up to the task of joining us on the frontlines of protecting Alaska’s diverse ecosystem.

You will also read about our latest, and I may add, successful battle. I am so pleased to report that our persistence has paid off. The Supreme Court determined that the State of Alaska must consider all environmental impacts of oil and gas projects.

As Trustees for Alaska prepares to celebrate its 40th anniversary next year, we continue to address the issues related to restoring and protecting Alaska.

As always, we offer many ways to give. In addition to making a one-time gift, you can increase the value of your gift by joining our monthly giving program. By choosing the monthly giving option you will reduce mail costs so more of your gift goes directly to protecting the environmental and social health of Alaska. Both options are available on our website www.trustees.org — click on Donate Now — it’s now easier than ever!

Trustees for Alaska is the only Alaska-based nonprofit public interest law firm providing legal counsel to protect and sustain Alaska’s natural environment. We provide legal counsel to diverse constituencies on the major environmental policy issues facing Alaska.

Our work is far from over — and relies on donations from foundations and individuals who care about protecting Alaska’s special places. Support us today! Your contribution of $50, $75 or $100 is an investment in Alaska’s future. I can assure you that we will use your dollars wisely — right here in Alaska — to fight for the protection of the resources that are a part of every American’s natural heritage. That’s our promise to you!
