Connecticut Tour – Possible Futures Books

April 21, 2023, 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

Maya K. van Rossum, author of The Green Amendment, The People’s Fight For a Clean, Safe & Healthy Environment will be touring Connecticut to talk about her new book, the Green Amendment movement, and how Connecticut can benefit from securing a constitutional right to clean and healthy air, water, and soil; a stable climate; and health ecosystems as part of its state constitution.

van Rossum is a veteran environmentalist on a mission to use our state and federal constitutions to empower activists and provide hope to communities everywhere seeking to address environmental racism, the climate crisis, and the ongoing ravages of polluted water and air, toxic contamination, and withering ecosystems nationwide. She is the founder of Green Amendments For The Generations, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring passage of Green Amendments in every state across the U.S. that would recognize and protect environmental rights on par with other inalienable civic and political freedoms such as speech and property.

In 2023, Connecticut joined over a dozen states that have active Green Amendment efforts underway. The CT Environmental Rights Amendment was introduced in the General Assembly and had a public hearing in the Environment Committee. Although the CT Environmental Rights Amendment gained support from over 30 environmental, civic, and religious organizations, it was not brought up for a vote by the committee. The CT Environmental Rights Amendment Alliance will continue efforts to broaden and extend community support. Learn more.
