237 years after the Declaration of Independence, the spirit of freedom is alive and well in New York’s environmental movement.

It’s there, in the amazing statewide campaign to protect us from the ravages of fracking.

And, in the fight against a senseless desalination project in Rockland County.

No less so, when dozens of community-minded citizens muster to test water quality and demand that their local officials act against pollution.

A safe environment has never been more essential to our life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Here’s to all who put themselves on the line, for this cause. Riverkeeper is awed by what you have achieved, and proud to fight with you.
