Urban Balance is proud of our recent donation to the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) to help end America’s role in the slaughter of elephants for ivory. The funds will be used to put pressure on lawmakers to establish final rules to control the deadly ivory trade.
We believe it is part of our role as mental health counselors to increase our consciousness and awareness of the issues facing our world today. It is important that we advocate for causes we are passionate about, and remember that cultural and environmental change starts with individual change. Every thing you do to contribute to a social cause makes an impact – no matter how big or small it may be.
This is part of our responsibility to be involved in positive change in the world, and step outside the four corners of our office to advocate for something we care about.
