With the consequences of climate change becoming ever more clear and dire with each passing day, a new powerful wave of the climate movement is rising up.

Young people around the world are joining together to defend our future, and have been going on strike – every week, all over the planet. In the September Climate Strikes alone, over 7 million people took to the streets! And now we're building more momentum for climate action here in the Garden State.

We're holding a Climate Strike on December 6th from 1:30-2:30 pm at Peter Francisco Park in Newark, NJ. Will you strike with us? RSVP here.

Climate Strike Schedule

  • 12:00 PM - Gather at Rutgers Newarks Norman Samuels Plaza, where we will be joined by communities from across NJ joining us by train. Meet fellow strikers, create art, learn songs, and drink hot chocolate.
  • 1:00 PM - March to NJ Transit Headquarters to demand renewable energy - No NJ Transit Natural Gas Power Plant.
  • 1:30-2:30 PM - Rally at Peter Francisco Park. (70 New Jersey Railroad Ave, Newark, NJ 07102) Hear from movements leaders and community members from across North Jersey, as we demand actions from our elected officials.

Join Clean Water Action, our Empower NJ coalition and members, and concerned residents as we demand a moratorium on all fossil fuels projects in New Jersey. We recently had a victory when Governor Murphy announced he would not support the construction of the North Bergen power plant in the Meadowlands. This decision came after months and months of activism from adult and youth environmentalists. If we work together, this movement is unstoppable. RSVP to #climatestrike with us on December 6th!

NJ Transit has just proposed the building of a fracked gas power plant to be built along the Hackensack River in Kearny. This power plant will be paid for using 410 million dollars from a Hurricane Sandy disaster relief fund and will become the 13th largest emitter of greenhouse gases in New Jersey dumping 571,000 tons of Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere annually. New Jersey already has poor air quality, especially in Kearny and the Newark metro area, and it will only worsen with the operation of this power plant.

Join us as we strike to protest this power plant alongside our key demands for Clean Air, Clean Water, Clean Energy, and Justice for All. Sign up now to be a part of the #ClimateStrike!
