July 13th: National Green Amendment Day

July 13, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

This year, Green Amendments For The Generations is partnering with environmental justice leaders across the nation to launch the inaugural Green Amendment Day on July 13th.

Green Amendment Day is dedicated to educating and engaging civil rights, environmental, environmental justice and Indigenous leaders and community members across the nation around the power of Green Amendments for ending environmental racism and restoring environmental justice through constitutional empowerment.

Environmental racism is just too widespread and ingrained in our society to entrust to politics and politicians. Communities of color disproportionately live in environmental sacrifice zones, where industrial contaminants, pollution, and other poisons degrade water, air, and soil, causing heart disease, asthma, cancer, compromised immune systems, and other serious illnesses.

Ending environmental racism and securing true environmental justice requires systemic legal and government reform. By providing constitutional recognition and protection we can raise up the inalienable rights of all people to a clean & healthy environment, and transform our system of laws and government to ensure environmental justice is mandatory, equitable and enforceable.

In honor of the inaugural Green Amendment Day, we’re challenging you to take action for the Green Amendment Movement!

Actions to take on July 13 coming soon! Register for our EJ Panel at 7:00pm ET.
