Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy
The Gulf Coast Center for Law and Policy (GCCLP) is a non-profit public interest law firm and justice center focusing equity and justice in the Gulf South states (Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Texas). GCCLP provides trainings, programs, and services focusing on climate justice, migrants rights, land sovereignty, and economic opportunity for those communities that are on the frontlines of climate change.
GCCLP offers both training and direct legal services. Legal services focus on immigration, disaster claims, and land rights. Trainings focus on race and power, unconscious bias, legal and human rights, and climate justice.
The training on climate justice educates participants about "the connection between climate, poverty, fossil-fuel based economy, culture of consumerism and climate disaster." Participants develop strategies for "grassroots solutions to food deserts, migration, disaster-response, criminalization and toxic pollution from the various industries."
