Amidst a worsening public health and climate crisis, the Governor must fulfill his promise of clean air and environmental justice for ALL New Jerseyans, regardless of zip code, by stopping his own agency from moving forward with this disastrous power plant. Please forward this alert to your organizational members and through your networks. Forward together! Matt on behalf of the EmpowerNJ Coordinating Cmte.
