About the book:
In the decades long fight for a cleaner environment, we’ve been fighting a losing battle. The sad truth is, our laws are designed to accommodate pollution rather than prevent it. People feel powerless when it comes to preserving the quality of their water, air, public parks, and special natural spaces.

The solution, argues Delaware Riverkeeper Maya K. van Rossum in a pathbreaking book, is to bypass the laws and turn to the ultimate authority: our state and federal constitutions. In 2013, van Rossum and her team won a watershed legal victory that not only protected Pennsylvania communities from ruthless frackers, but affirmed the constitutional right of people in the state to a clean and healthy environment.

Following this victory, van Rossum inaugurated the Green Amendment movement, dedicated to empowering every American community to mobilize for constitutional change. In The Green Amendment, van Rossum lays out an inspiring new agenda for environmental advocacy, one that will finally empower people.

We all have the right to pure water, clean air, and a healthy environment. It’s time to claim that right—for our own sake and that of future generations.

The Green Amendment has been honored as a 2018 Living Now Evergreen Awards GOLD Winner in the Nature Conservation category, received an Honorable Mention in the 2017 Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards, and includes a powerful foreword authored by Mark Ruffalo, which supports the visionary constitutional path advocated for in the book.

Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra Presents: Motion & Mood Pictures @ Ruby Diamond Auditorium
May 4 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra Presents: Motion & Mood Pictures @ Ruby Diamond Auditorium | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

This knockout season finale presents music related to “pictures,” both motion and mood. Bernard Hermann and Erich Korngold were both master film-score composers, and although the latter’s Violin Concerto was not specifically written for the cinema, it deeply inhabits the sound world of the silver screen. Holst’s iconic The Planets, which he described as “a series of mood pictures,” was born from the composer’s fleeting interest in astrology, and has become one of the most oft-performed and beloved orchestral pieces.

Featuring violinist, William Hagen

Hermann, Vertigo Suite
Korngold, Violin Concerto, Op. 35
Holst, The Planets, Op. 32
