Advance a Green Amendment in New Jersey

NJ ACTION ALERT!

URGENT CALL TO ACTION! 

Once Again – the New Jersey Green Amendment (ACR72/SCR15) is not on the agenda for even one hearing this legislative session despite a four-year struggle and strong support from 70 legislative cosponsors. Please take action today. We need phone calls, tweets, and emails to NJ legislators to get a June hearing for your right to clean water and air!  

TAKE ACTION TODAY — do any combo of the following and get others to do the same!

  1. Call legislators
    1. You can find your 3 legislators’ numbers here (leave a voicemail if they don’t answer) and tell them you want your right to clean water & air (ACR72/SCR15) be granted a hearing in March! 
    2. Make your efforts more impactful, call the 2 legislators who direct powers to grant a hearing: Assembly Speaker Coughlin & Senate President Scutari
    3. And call legislative champions who have powerful influence if they speak up: Assembly members: McKeon, Benson, Kennedy & Stanley; and Senators: Greenstein, Zwicker, Ruiz & Cunningham. And thank Senator Smith for taking the steps to secure a hearing! 
  2. Tweet about the NJ Green Amendment and urge our legislators to give ACR72/SCR15 a hearing in March. The Tool Kit provides tweets for all NJ legislators who have a twitter handle.
  3. Email your legislators with this automatic sender link to urge a hearing in March on your right to clean water & air.
  4. Sign on your organization as a supporter of the NJ Green Amendment here!
