We are working to build economic, social and environmental justice (EJ) in New Jersey's urban communities faced with the disproportionate impacts of pollution. We work with diverse constituencies for sustainable solutions that result in clean, thriving, healthy communities.
The strength of our programs lies in our ability to not only enact stronger local, state and federal politics, but to work on a grassroots level, engaging and empowering people to make a difference.
Climate Resiliency in Newark: #NEWARKSTRONG
Educating and empowering people to make a difference in public debates and policy decisions affecting their lives. Environmental justice requires decisionmaking that respects the rights of all to live in healthy communities. NJ Environmental Federation and Clean Water Action members get involved by calling and writing their public officials, urging support for enviromental and health protection policies.
We advocate for a safe and clean energy economy (including renewable energy sources like solar and wind) and the creation of green jobs and we oppose dirty energy sources like coal, nuclear and liquid natural gas.
