Protecting Drinking Water

Clean Water Action is working for water policies that are affordable and safe for those served, are the most conserving and replenishing of the system, reduce toxic loads, and make polluters pay for their wrongdoing.

Six Flags Solar Farm

Six Flags Great Adventure wants to do a good deed but in a horrible way - build NJ's largest solar farm by clear cutting almost 70 acres of healthy Pinelands forest despite a perfect alternative location right next door - its 100-acre parking lot!

Lead and Drinking Water in New Jersey

The lead crisis in Flint, Michigan; Newark, New Jersey and across the country signals a serious need to reexamine national and state drinking water policies, repair and update our crumbling water infrastructure, and make sure sure we reduce lead at the tap, especially where children are concerned.

I'm so excited to start a new position as the new North Jersey organizer for Clean Water Action’s Rethink Disposable program. I want to mention that I’m a canvasser too. If you live in North Jersey, we may have met at your front door! While I’m canvassing and talking to people all over the state about environmental issues in New Jersey, I love the fact that no matter where I go everyone cares about the environment and tries to do their part in protecting it.
