PACRN has been busy & you can be a part!
The Pennsylvania Community Rights Network has been busy over the past six months preparing, training, and promoting a Constitutional Amendment in the Pennsylvania legislature.
We have also been making contacts to roll out our new initiative, The Alarm.
These are two of the major projects we are focusing on this year in order to push our message to every county in the state, as well as to every legislator who represents We the People.
Read on and see what we are doing, and how you can be a part of it...
PA Constitutional Amendment
Pennsylvania Community Rights Network Board members have been traveling to Harrisburg to meet with our elected officials over the past few weeks, and we will continue these meetings in the months to come. We have been talking with our legislators (and yours) about passing an amendment to the PA Constitution that would allow our communities the right of Local Self-Government.
We are seeking the right for our communities to be able to enact laws that protect our health and safety and welfare. It is hard to believe, but we don't presently have the legal right to these things. Laws have been written and interpreted in a way that allows outside, harmful corporations to come in and exploit our communities for the corporations' own benefit.
The fundamental human rights of our neighbors would remain in tact, but we are asking for greater power in saying "NO" to unwanted, destructive activities like injection wells, fracking, sludge, factory farms, and export pipelines.
We want to hear from you! Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us here.
