Update 2021-12-19: WWALS will hold a webinar about Rights to Clean Water, Air, Land, and a healthy environment at 7PM, March 10, 2022. Stay tuned for details.
Update 2021-12-18: A new Florida Right to Clean Water statewide petition will be available February 2, 2022, with the aim of getting the amendment on the November 2024 ballot.
Water as a human right will be on the Florida statewide ballot this fall, if enough Floridians sign the petition.
Plus wetlands protection, iconic species protection including the manatee, a ban on new or expanded toll roads, and a ban on captive wildlife hunting. As the website FL5.ORG says: Keep Florida Alive, Sign all 5.
For each petition, that’s 222,898 signatures to get judicial and financial review, and 891,589 to get it on the ballot.
It’s doable: there are more than 21 million Floridians.
