Civic Engagement in New Jersey

Since its founding in 1972, civic engagement has been central to Clean Water Action's mission and strategy. We work to educate and empower the public, hold elected officials accountable, and build grassroots strength to change politics and environmental policy in New Jersey and across the country. Grassroots organizing (canvassing or door-to-door organizing) is the heart and soul of our organization, giving our members the tools to act to protect what they care about and it is their actions that gives us the power to make a difference.
