April 4 @ 9:30 am - 3:15 pm

Please join the New Jersey Environmental Justice Alliance and the Center for American Progress, along with state officials, members of Congress, environmental justice community residents and advocates, and progressive policy leaders, to discuss just policy options to reduce carbon pollution and associated co-pollutants. Participants will also assess strategies to prepare for climate change effects and address cumulative pollution impacts in environmental justice communities. Held on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., the summit will create an opportunity to reflect on King’s legacy and advance progress toward environmental justice.
