Environmental Action

Want to get involved? Here is some news from Food and Water Watch NJ on some upcoming important events to ban fracking waste in our beautiful Garden State.

June 12th Day of Action

Keeping fracking waste out of our waterways and communities is critical to protecting our environment and public health.  Our state is vulnerable to this toxic and radioactive waste because Governor Christie vetoed a bill banning the treatment and disposal of fracking waste in our state in September.

We are pushing for an override vote to get these protections in place by the end of the month and we need your help.  If you’ve signed a petition, you’ve begun to share your voice.  Now join us in Monmouth County to urge Assemblywomen Handlin and Casagrande and Assemblyman O’Scanlon to support this bill a second time and, if need be, override another veto!

These legislators voted “yes” on the bill last June and now we need their support again.  Help us bring the message to their district offices: “Don’t bury your head in the sand about fracking waste!”
