Hello friends and fellow activists!

Activism is about community, so Clean Water Action is Zooming our activist community to your living room! We have organized an incredible Health, Democracy & the Environment panel led by NJ organizers and local experts (check out our speakers here) as well as an exciting month of weekly virtual seminars LIVE on Facebook.

Register for the Tuesday Night Climate Series Now! Next up is Tuesday 4/21 at 7 PM Hear from Kim Gaddy, Clean Water Action's Environmental Justice Organizer, and Wynnie-Fred Victor Hinds, co-chair of the Newark Environmental Commission about the 18,000 trucks go in and out of Port Newark/Elizabeth every day. Electrification of the goods movement is essential to mitigating climate change in the next ten years, as well as protecting the well-being of the local residents and drivers who breathe dirty diesel port and highway fumes every day.
