OHCRN has grown out of the local grassroots organizing that the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) has assisted communities with for over 15 years. That work includes assisting communities to draft Community Bills of Rights – in effect, local constitutions – that assert new civil and political rights for the community, and then prohibit those activities that would infringe on those rights.
