The quality of our natural resources directly impacts the health and wellness of our families, our communities, and our parks and open spaces. And, unfortunately, those resources are facing some serious challenges here in New Jersey.
From contaminated drinking water and out of control air pollution that disproportionately affects communities of color, to continued threats to our most cherished parks and natural areas, New Jersey, the most densely populated state in the nation, needs everyone’s help. If we want our communities to be safe and clean, we need increasingly bold action by the Governor, State Legislature, County and Local elected officials..
We believe that by focusing on these top priorities and putting forth policies that address the disparate impact of climate, air, water, and land pollution in communities of color, we can improve public health, protect the natural beauty of our state, and combat climate change — while creating sustainable and equitable economic growth.
