PROTECTING OUR RIGHTS!
Green Amendments are state constitutional amendments for the right to clean water, clean air and a healthy environment.
Picking up from where we left off at the June 4th 2021 episode of Eco-Logic, we delve into the successes and current status of passing more Green Amendments on Green Amendments Day, July 13, 2022. New York voters passed it in November-- now for the rest of the 16 states with active campaigns.
Eco-Logic is honored to have as our guest Maya van Rossum, the Delaware Riverkeeper & leader of the Delaware Riverkeeper Network; founder of the Green Amendments For The Generations Movement; and author of “The Green Amendment; Securing Our Right to a Healthy Environment”.
“Securing a Constitutional Right to Pure Water, Clean Air, a Stable Climate & Healthy Environments, For All People, Including Future Generations, Regardless of Race, Ethnicity, Religion or Income”.
