Join us for a Rally and Hearing for 100% Clean Energy in Hackensack!
From dangerous heatwaves combined with exceeding smog pollution, to destructive flash flooding events and toxic algae blooms closing our largest freshwater lakes, New Jersey is already feeling the impacts of our climate and ecological emergency.
The increasing urgency of our climate crisis is why Governor Murphy campaigned on a plan to move New Jersey quickly onto 100% clean energy. Yet his draft Energy Master Plan (EMP) is silent on currently proposed fossil fuel projects like the North Bergen Meadowlands, and the NJ Transit Meadowlands fracked gas power plants.
Now we must use our voices to demand a real plan to avert climate catastrophe and ensure environmental justice, one that includes an immediate moratorium on fossil fuel projects and immediate and aggressive cuts to existing sources of pollution, with a priority on reducing pollution in our most overburdened communities.
On Tuesday September 3rd, the NJ Board of Public Utilities will be hosting a public hearing on the EMP in Hackensack. We need as many people as possible to join us any time between 5pm and 8:00pm on the 3rd to witness, support and/or testify.
What: Public hearing and rally demanding a real climate and clean energy plan for New Jersey.
Who: Everyone concerned about the impacts of climate change and dirty energy pollution.
When: Tuesday, September 3rd, between 5:00 - 8:00 pm
Where: Hackensack Administration Building, Freeholder’s Public Meeting Room, 5th floor, 1 Bergen County Plaza, Hackensack, NJ
