WOW!!! We did it!

The goal for the first $50,000.00 has been reached!  Thank you!

Thanks to members like you we managed to raise $50,000.00 in four-and-one-half days toward our legal costs!  Thank you for helping us reach our first goal! We will use this money to seek a court-order that stops Southern California Edison from burying nuclear waste on the beach at San Onofre.

As of noon yesterday, (August 16)  Public Watchdogs had raised $50,000.00 from members like you!


FUNDRAISING GOALS: $50,000 for attorneys, $50,000 for expert testimony.

Public Watchdogs had until Thursday morning, August 16th, to build a legal war chest to stop Southern California Edison from burying nuclear waste on the beach at San Onofre State Beach Park.  We have reached the first goal of $50,000.00 by Thursday morning!

Every single penny of what you donate to this drive will be used to pay attorney fees, court costs, and the testimony of paid subject matter experts.  We expect expert testimony to cost another $50,000.00 and we have been told that this amount is “optimistic” and that subject matter expert fees may cost more.

If you have questions, or would like to help host a fundraising event, call Charles Langley at (858) 752-4600.

  1. Thank you so much for the great work you are doing on our behalf. I want to donate, but when I click on the “fund the fight” link above, your website directs me a general page for signing up as a member. I want my donation to be ear-marked specifically toward the cost of the injunction. How do I do that?

    2) Also, if the injunction has been filed, where can I review a copy? Is it online?

    1. You are welcome. All donations received during before the deadline were dedicated as “restricted funds.” Donations received after the deadline will be used at our discretion and may be used to pay salaries, office supplies, travel expenses, office rent, etc. Many donors are uncomfortable with the thought that the money they give to a nonprofit will be used to pay salaries to the people who work at that nonprofit, but the harsh reality is that without workers, the legal work and advocacy would never get done.

      Under the law, a California charity must make its tax forms publicly available. You can look at the tax forms for almost any nonprofit by entering the nonprofit’s name here:
