Anne Tough’s connection to Ecojustice goes way, way back and even predates her 19 years as a committed supporter of our work. You see, Anne taught Margot Venton, one of Ecojustice’s long-time staff lawyers, in grade one.
Margot fondly remembers Mrs. Tough as being “very cool” and credits her teacher for helping set her on her path of critical thinking, engagement and action — the foundation of her law career and work leading Ecojustice’s environmental rights portfolio.
While Anne certainly left an impression on her students, she’s also instilled philanthropic and environmental values in her own children. Anne is just one of our many thoughtful donors who honour family members with charitable gifts in their name to Ecojustice.
