Our Green New Deal: A Community-University Working Session for Environmental Justice in the Passaic River Watershed | Session 1

 

How can local communities, universities, and government officials in northern New Jersey work together to ensure that President Biden’s Green New Deal and climate change initiatives will benefit our region? And what can we do to ensure that such benefits are just and equitable, especially for disadvantaged frontline communities?

Our New Green Deal: A Community-University Working Session for Environmental Justice in the Passaic River Watershed is a series of virtual work sessions on forging an environmentally equitable Green New Deal and a just transition in the climate change era.
