Uphold Pennsylvania’s Environmental Rights Amendment & Act on Climate!

email from Delaware Riverkeeper Network, 12/13/18

Pennsylvania’s constitution contains an environmental rights amendment, or a Green Amendment—Article 1, Section 27—protecting every Pennsylvanian’s right to pure water, clean air and a healthy environment for both present and future generations.

Since its adoption in 1971, legislators and governors have largely ignored it. In 2013, the Delaware Riverkeeper Network, Maya van Rossum, the Delaware Riverkeeper, and her team won a watershed legal victory that breathed legal life into the constitutional right of people in the state to a clean and healthy environment. But the battle to fully define and defend the environmental rights of the People of Pennsylvania continues.

It’s time for Pennsylvanians to claim that right.

The Delaware Riverkeeper Network, along with the Better Path Coalition, invite you to join our campaign to tell Harrisburg that it’s time to uphold Article 1, Section 27 and be the climate and environmental champions we need.

Here’s how you can get involved!

Plan to join us in Harrisburg on January 27th (1/27) to learn more about our Pennsylvania Green Amendment and to be part of our call to the legislators that it is time to honor their oath to defend our constitutional right to pure water, clean air and a healthy environment.
