New Jersey Environmental Federation: Clean Water Action


Register for the NJ Environmental Federation’s 27th annual conference on Saturday, April 6, 2013 (8 am – 5 pm) at Georgian Court University. You’ll learn how to hold the New Jersey governor and legislature accountable to a pro-environmental agenda in New Jersey’s 2013 gubernatorial election year and beyond.

Plus, find out how you can press the Administration to fulfill its commitment to clean water, sustainable development, clean energy, and environmental justice. Learn new skills, get the facts you needs, facts and sharpen those advocacy talents you already have. Together, we can protect natural resources, communities, and our health from environmental injustices.

The day features keynote speakers (we have invited New Jersey’s 2013 gubernatorial candidates), environmental workshops, networking opportunities, activist awards, light breakfast, lunch, and a wine and cheese reception with political and environmental leaders.
