In 2019, New York Legislators passed a proposed amendment to the New York State Constitution, acknowledging that clean air, water, and a healthy environment are a fundamental right. The passage of bill S 2072/A 2064 was the first step in making this Green Amendment into law, and upon a successful passage come 2021, the citizens of New York will have the opportunity to vote on it.
This coming May, Cathy Pedler of the Adirondack Mountain Club, partnered with Environmental Advocates of New York and Green Amendments for The Generations, are hosting a free 3-part webinar series covering the Green Amendment.
