Join the fight for climate science – before it’s too late

In the first quarter of 2024, twenty-four scientists came to us for legal help, including a professor facing egregious climate censorship by his university and researchers fearing legal risks from investigating climate misinformation. We’re hiring another attorney to meet the workload.

We are also collectively facing the prospect of a return of a federal administration that doesn’t believe in climate change. Will you join the fight for climate science before it’s too late?

This summer, a group of amazing supporters have recognized this crucial moment and will match your gift, doubling it up to $40,000. This generous support will allow us to:

  • Make sure scientists can safely engage in democracy and advocacy with toolkits, education sessions, and outreach. Scientists’ voices must be heard in the upcoming election.
  • Preemptively strive for better protections for science at the federal level, working with partners and key groups while we still can.
  • Prepare legal defenses for the cataclysmic impact of thousands of federal researchers potentially losing their jobs.
  • And, of course, provide free legal representation to climate scientists who continue to be attacked and silenced due to their work.

This summer, please stand with us on the frontlines of the war on science. Together, we can do this.

Why donate to CSLDF?

A record-breaking number of scientists…

… came to us for free legal representation and support in 2023. And we’re already on track to beat that record this year.


We continue to track efforts to silence science

Efforts to interfere with scientific integrity have continued across the country. To date, we have tracked 530 government attempts to silence or interfere with science.

We help scientists understand how to advocate safely and effectively

As we face the prospect of the return of an anti-science administration, scientists’ voices must be heard in the upcoming election.
