Dear friends,

Fantastic news!!  ELAW partner Thuli Brilliance Makama from Swaziland won a Goldman Prize today -- the world's most prestigious environmental award!

Thuli is Swaziland's only public interest environmental lawyer.  She has faced considerable personal risk defending the rights of villagers living near game parks.

Her courageous work is being celebrated today in San Francisco, along with five other Goldman Prize winners from around the world.

Sincerely,

Maggie Keenan
