Elevating environmental issues for all candidates running for Governor of Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania has a pollution problem. Our forests and streams are second to none, yet 19,000 miles of our streams and rivers are unsafe for drinking, recreation, aquatic life, or agricultural use. Our urban areas are fast-growing, yet we have the third worst air quality in the country; as a result, in some Pennsylvania cities one in three children suffers from asthma.
The impetus for creating the Agenda now is the upcoming Pennsylvania gubernatorial election; it represents an opportune time to push for changes in the state’s priorities and policies for safeguarding the environment. During the 2018 election cycle, our coalition will be taking this agenda to the candidates for governor across the political spectrum and urging each one to enact our recommendations.
But it’s going to take more than our efforts alone to produce results. It’s going to require a groundswell of support from Pennsylvania citizens like you, speaking out on this crucial issue. That’s why we’re backing the Agenda with the Green In ’18 campaign. This will entail reaching out to Pennsylvanians across the state to increase their sense of urgency about the environmental problems facing us, letting them know about the Agenda’s game-changing solutions, and motivating them to meet the gubernatorial candidates on the campaign trail and speak out.
