Since May 31, Stand.earth has been fighting off an intimidation lawsuit filed by Canada’s largest logging company, Resolute Forest Products (NYSE: RFP) (TSX: RFP). Intimidation lawsuits, called Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (“SLAPP” suits), are often filed by large companies against much smaller nonprofits, usually with negligible hope of success on the merits.

One of the things I love the most about working at Stand.earth is that we go toe to toe challenging some of the world’s largest companies to do better, to stop destroying forests, to address climate change, to not put people and our planet at risk. This is never comfortable – not for us taking on companies that have more revenue in a few hours than we fundraise in a full year. And it’s not comfortable for the companies we take on – who often want to do the right thing but have simply not prioritized it.
