On the inaugural Green Amendment Day, join a presentation and panel of leading environmental justice voices from across the nation, united in ending environmental racism and restoring environmental justice through constitutional empowerment.
Our panelists represent different areas where environmental justice intersects: a grassroots leader, a legislator, a scientific expert, a Tribal Liaison, and a Green Amendment national expert. Hear first hand how they are pursuing true environmental justice with the power of a Green Amendment. Constitutional recognition and protection can elevate 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.
Panelists and Speakers include:
Kim Gaddy, Founder and Director, South Ward Environmental Alliance
Dr. Sacoby Wilson, Associate Professor, Maryland Institute for Applied Environmental Health
Senator Antoinette Sedillo Lopez, serving New Mexico’s 16th District and lead sponsor of the NM Green Amendment
Terry Sloan, Director, Southwest Native Cultures
Kerri Evelyn Harris, Community Organizer and Advocate
Maya van Rossum, Founder, Green Amendments For The Generations and the Delaware Riverkeeper
The panel will be moderated by Maria Payan, Senior Regional Representative, Socially Responsible Agriculture Project (SRAP), Sussex Health & Environmental Network (SHEN)
