Happy Summer! Welcome to Clean Water on the Move, your monthly update from Clean Water Action and Clean Water Fund. Take a look at what our amazing staff has been up to and what is coming in the months ahead. Thanks for your ongoing support for our work towards a healthy environment for all.
We will all breathe easier once New Jersey’s Environmental Justice Law is implemented. Signed by Governor Murphy two years ago, the law gives the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) the power to deny permits to polluting industries that would further harm overburdened communities all across the state. It has the potential to be one of the strongest policies of this type in the nation.
To celebrate Clean Water Action's 50th anniversary, we’re sharing our history and journey with the people who have joined us along the way as we worked to protect clean water through #CleanWater50 stories. Today's story features Janet Tauro, a long time grassroots activist and NJ Advisory Board Chair of Clean Water Action.
