NY Green Amendment Election Day!

Election Day is on Tuesday, November 2nd, and all of New York will have the opportunity to cast a vote to amend the state constitution to establish the right to clean air and clean water.

The ballot question reads as follows:

Ballot Proposal 2:

Right to Clean Air, Clean Water, and a Healthful Environment

The proposed amendment to Article I of the New York Constitution would establish the right of each person to clean air and water and a healthful environment. Shall the proposed amendment be approved?

Want to help? Here's how:

Spread The Word — Distribute Door Hangers

Among our most important tasks for securing a New York Green Amendment is educating friends & neighbors about the values of having a NY Green Amendment and encouraging them to vote yes on November 2nd.  An easy way to do that is to share 5, 10, 20, 35, 100 or more of our pre-printed door hangers.

Please consider volunteering to canvas your neighborhood and put door hangers on just a few or lots of doors, it’s all helpful!  If you don’t want to hang them on doors you can also hand them out to people you see – share it with co-workers, family or friends.

Our friendly and bright door hangers provide basic information about the power and importance of securing bill of rights protection for our environmental rights, and alerts people that they will have the opportunity to vote on the proposed New York Green Amendment at the upcoming November 2nd election.

If you are willing to spread the word by distributing door hangers – whether a few or lots – just let us know by sending an email to, give us your name, address, phone number and how many you want and we’ll send them right out.
