TITUSVILLE, FL.In the heart of Florida, the Sunshine State, a pivotal battle for clean water and environmental justice is unfolding. The Right to Clean Water Charter Amendment is at the center of this struggle, aiming to secure a fundamental right for all Floridians. The journey to secure this right has seen remarkable victories and persistent challenges.

A Landmark Victory:

In Titusville, a significant victory was achieved when the Right to Clean Water Charter Amendment was passed with an overwhelming 82% of the vote. This resounding support from the community demonstrates the strong commitment to ensuring access to clean and safe water. The residents of Titusville spoke with a united voice, setting an inspiring example for the entire state.

The Challenge:

Unfortunately, the battle for clean water rights in Titusville did not end with the vote. Despite the community’s clear choice, the City of Titusville responded with a lawsuit against Speak Up Titusville, the nonprofit organization behind the charter amendment. This legal battle is set to go to court on November 16, 2023.

The Ongoing Legal Struggle:

The case has taken unexpected turns. A different judge has ruled that the case will be heard again, questioning the constitutionality of the charter amendment. The City’s attorney claims the initial judge did not understand the complexities involved. This turn of events emphasizes the importance of a fair and impartial judgment in the fight for clean water.

Supporting Speak Up Titusville:

Speak Up Titusville, comprised of dedicated citizens, has tirelessly worked to secure the legal battle for the Right to Clean Water. Now, more than ever, they need your support to cover their attorney’s fees. FRONNEd, acting as a legal champion in this fight, is standing by, ready to uphold the cause.
