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!
- Call legislators
- 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!
- Make your efforts more impactful, call the 2 legislators who direct powers to grant a hearing: Assembly Speaker Coughlin & Senate President Scutari
- 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!
