The people and ecosystems of New Hampshire face unsustainable projects such as the proposed Northern Pass industrial hydro-energy project, fracked gas pipeline infrastructure, corporate water withdrawals, sludging of toxic human waste on farmland, and ridgeline industrial wind. Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) has assisted communities across New Hampshire to prohibit such harmful projects that violate the rights of human and natural communities, through local Rights-based Ordinances establishing Community Bills of Rights laws, which assert the right to democratic, community self-government - including the right to protect clean air and water.
Education empowers, and NHCRN is committed to grassroots education for residents and their elected officials. The NHCRN Community Rights Awareness Campaignfocuses on local community self-government, which is essential to achieving economic, social and environmental sustainability in communities across the state. The campaign will assist in helping protect the rights of all residents, their communities, and nature from harmful corporate activities.
