The Trump election represented a body blow to the fight against climate change. In this new era, state leadership is more important than ever. That’s why 40 labor, environmental, faith, and community groups have come together and launched Jersey Renews, a coalition that’s rallying support for Garden State policies that will lead to climate justice, clean energy, and good jobs.
Join us for one of our Jersey Renews kick-off meetings:
You’ll hear from dynamic speakers who will describe how intelligent state policies can help us reach the greenhouse gas emission reduction goals we need, maintain and create good jobs, and give us cleaner air in our communities. New Jerseyans will elect a new governor later this year. We need all the candidates to know that there’s powerful support for taking action on climate change.
And, because we need to join our efforts to the national upsurge in support for socially just climate action, you’ll hear up-to-the-minute updates about the People’s Climate March in Washington DC on 4/29, including updates on the march route and the design of the action, opportunities to sign up for buses to DC, and more.
Jersey Renews is the most diverse coalition ever assembled in New Jersey to address climate change. If you click here, you’ll see the list of partners on the campaign website. WEC has helped to assemble this group as part of our commitment to acting on climate change. From steelworkers to university professors to clergy to environmentalists to racial justice advocates to nurses and more – we’re all coming together to deliver a simple message to our state leaders state leaders in 2017:
We want climate justice, clean energy and good jobs in the Garden State.
Join us on March 27, April 3 or April 10 to learn more and to get involved. The time for action is now.
