Empower NJ Announces the NJ Tour For a Fossil Fuel Moratorium

New Jerseyans are joining together in opposition to the growing threat of new polluting pipelines, power plants, compressor stations, and other fossil fuel infrastructure proposals.

They are lobbying local, state, and federal decision makers to take action to protect our air, water, and safety by denying a dozen NJ proposals like the Raritan Bay gas pipeline, Monmouth County SRL gas pipeline, Meadowlands gas power plant.

Empower NJ, a coalition of New Jersey's largest environmental, faith, and progressive organizations, is organizing the "NJ Tour For a Fossil Fuel Moratorium", a series of public forums beginning February 18. We'll hear from experts and community leaders who are on the front lines of the fight to stop the Meadowlands Power Plant and the 12 new fossil fuel projects proposed throughout our state 

Join Empower NJ for our public meetings and learn about these fossil fuel proposals in our communities, why they endanger our air, water, and safety, and what you can do to help stop them.
