The Environmental Rights Amendment guarantees Pennsylvanians an enforceable right to ensure their government acts in a manner that protects our right to a healthy environment, and it imposes an obligation on the government to manage our public resources in a manner that conserves them for current and future generations. PennFuture advocates and takes legal actions to ensure that all levels of government are fulfilling their constitutional duty to protect these fundamental rights.
Enough is Enough. For more than a century, Pennsylvania’s extractive industries have created a legacy that continues to threaten our natural resources and beautiful places.
PennFuture is working to restore Pennsylvania’s public investment in environmental protection and conservation through renewed funding for Growing Greener programs and budget increases for DCNR, DEP, and state wildlife agencies.
Report pollution and help bring problems to the attention of PennFuture and regulators.
As you walk in the woods, paddle down a river, or pass by an industrial area you may see signs of pollution from illegal discharges or activities.
REPORT these to the Department of Environmental Protection for investigation.
