NYPAN is a grassroots progressive organization that grew out of the Bernie Sanders movement.

Environment

NYPAN asserts that every person has a right to a clean and healthy environment, including pure water, clean air, and ecologically healthy habitats, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic, and aesthetic qualities of the environment. We believe that the State’s public natural resources are the common property of all the people, including both present and future generations.
