The Better Path Coalition invites you to participate in two days of events and action in Harrisburg when we call on our elected officials to uphold Pennsylvania's environmental rights amendment, Article 1, Section 27.

On Sunday, join us for a panel discussion featuring Franklin Kury, the former state representative who authored the amendment, Maya van Rossum, the Delaware Riverkeeper and author of the book, The Green Amendment, Jordan Yeager, one of the attorneys who won the landmark PA Supreme Court ruling on the basis of the amendment, and other speakers to be announced.

On Monday, join us at the Capitol to deliver the petition we launched at polling locations on Election Day. The petitions will be delivered to every legislator and Governor Wolf, along with copies of the Dr. Seuss classic, The Lorax. They'll be delivered by children dressed as the Lorax. We start with a rally and press event.
