Yesterday, Clean Water Action joined the Ironbound Community Corporation (ICC) and City of Newark Mayor Ras Baraka to lead a motorcade rally through the port followed by a rally on the steps of City Hall to demand the Port Authority of NY/NJ ensure clean air and good jobs now.
As we prepare for our Independence Day celebrations, I want to share two victories that we are proud to have accomplished.

Solid as a rock
Rooted like a tree
I am here
In my rightful place
Clean Water Action co-leads the Coalition for Healthy Ports NY/NJ and has joined the national Moving Forward Network urging the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) to address global climate change caused by diesel emissions at our ports, warehouses, and highways across the country. Together, our goal is to gather hundreds of thousands of signatures to demand #ZeroEmissionsNow - sign the petition here.
