The climate emergency is heating up in New Jersey, but so is the movement fighting for a future where everyone can thrive! That’s why we’re so excited to invite you to the first NJ Climate Action Gathering to connect with the state’s leading climate and environmental justice organizers and activists about their work to win bold solutions for a just transition off fossil fuels. The Gathering is the place to build new relationships, share skills and knowledge, and step into action!

This movement needs all of us, especially if you are brand new to climate activism!

All are welcome and encouraged to attend!
