Youth of Hoosick Falls Demand Clean Water in Social Media Ads
A series of new social media ads posted to Facebook feature several teenage residents of Hoosick Falls demanding the right to clean drinking water.
One of the ads states, “Everyone takes water for granted. You never expected for a contamination like that to get into our water.”
The ads have been posted by the Environmental Advocates of New York and Effective New York.
The two organizations are teaming up to lobby for a constitutional amendment that would grant New Yorkers the right to healthy drinking water, clean air, and a safe climate.
