The Ironbound Community Corp's (ICC) Down Bottom Farms, in Newark, NJ, was the launching location for the "Governor Murphy-Walk Your Talk on Climate Action" March taking Place Aug. 16 through Aug. 20. Wynnie-Fred Victor Hinds, of the Weequahic Park Association, was one of the speakers in front of the NJ Transit Headquarters location.


Ted Glick of 350NJ.org states that "the March will go from Newark to Elizabeth, to Woodbridge, to Old Bridge, and finally to Red Bank, just across the river from Governor Murphy’s home, where we’ll call on him to stop the 7 major fossil fuel projects threatening our communities and climate. If permitted these 7 projects would increase NJ’s total greenhouse gas pollution by 38%!

As the Climate Walk travels, we will engage in daily community rallies, educational events and other actions to uplift and amplify the determined struggles being waged throughout the state for clean air, healthy communities, and a rapid shift away from fossil fuels to jobs-creating clean renewable energy solutions. You can join for a portion or the entirety of the walk. If you can't join the walk, we still need you to join one or more of the community events along the way!"
