Thursday, September 3, 2020, 7:00pm to 8:30pm ET
Here’s The Story is an Emmy nominated show, produced by New Jersey’s acclaimed journalist Steve Rogers. In the two part episode, Rogers follows Maya van Rossum, founder of Green Amendments For The Generations, as she travels across New Jersey exploring why a Green Amendment is needed and how it can protect all people regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or income. The two part special features interviews with Governor Murphy, Trenton Mayor Guscior and environmental justice leaders from across the state.
As outlined in the show, a Green Amendment will greatly enhance the tools available to communities of color, indigenous and low-income communities to remedy current environmental threats they face. It also provides the opportunity to push back against further devastation by granting a fundamental human right that asserts no person should suffer disproportionate environmental, health and quality of life burdens because of who they are, the color of their skin, their ethnicity, their income, or where they live.
