Join Friends of Hudson as we celebrate five years of steadfast, people-powered dedication to protecting residents' health and quality of life in the Hudson Valley. The courage and support of our 3,800 members have made possible our early success over a hazardous waste plant at the Hudson waterfront, our pivotal role in challenging the region's cement industry, our educational lectures and events, and our ability to bring people together in support of positive, sustainable growth. And we're just getting started...
