Friday April 26th – 12pm  “ENVIRONMENTAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT”  WCU – Mitchell Hall Rom 102 – open to the public

Come hear why the Environmental Rights Amendment was necessary, why it was so popular when it passed, how PA courts emasculated it for 40 years and how its revival today can help protect PA’s environment from fracking and other abuses.
