Georgia Strait Alliance

Climate accountability: Building power of climate-engaged grassroots leaders and municipalities

Currently all local climate adaptation costs are borne by local governments while the fossil fuel industry makes hundreds of billions and takes no fiscal responsibility for the impacts of the use of its products. GSA is in communities supporting grassroots leaders and elected officials to recognize and use their power to change this system by gaining accountability from the oil and gas industry for their fair share of remediation costs, from flooding to drought to wildfires. Being held fiscally accountable for these impacts, the industry will ultimately recognize the economic case for transition to clean energy solutions and stop burdening local governments with billions of dollars in costs.

Rise Women's Legal Centre

Virtual Legal Clinic

The Virtual Legal Clinic addresses the critical lack of access to justice in small communities throughout BC. The project will develop a network of community partners with “safe computers” to act as service points for low-income women in need of legal assistance. Learning through doing, Rise will learn about the best practices for delivering virtual legal services, and will develop training for lawyers in order to jump start the use of virtual legal services throughout the province. Finally, Rise will use what they learn to seek to remove barriers to virtual legal services by working with government agencies and professional regulatory bodies to improve existing policies and practices.
