NEW JERSEY GREEN AMENDMENT

Act Now

Advance a Green Amendment in New Jersey

URGENT CALL TO ACTION! 

The New Jersey Green Amendment continues to be denied a hearing by the NJ Assembly and Senate leadership.  And so our actions continue to focus on spreading the word and calling on leadership to give the people an opportunity to speak and be heard.  Please help us spread the word.

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 before the end of 2022! 
    2. Make your efforts more impactful, call the 2 legislators who direct powers to grant a hearing: Assembly Speaker Coughlin & Senate President Scutari
    3. 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 this year!
  2. Get active on social media using our Social Action Toolkit
  3. Email your legislators with this automatic sender link to urge a hearing in 2022 on your right to clean water & air.

You can find a template for resolution language here and an outreach flyer that you can use to help encourage your municipal leaders or county freeholders to pass a resolution in support. Be sure your officials send a copy of the passed resolution to their state Assembly and Senate representatives and send a copy to Green Amendments For The Generations (925 Canal St, suite 3701, Bristol, PA 19007, or email to gaftg@forthegenerations.org so we can keep track of the building support. And if you would like Maya van Rossum, GAFTG Founder and author of the book The Green Amendment to come speak to your targeted board of officials about the benefits of a NJ Green Amendment we can arrange that too.
