NJ Transit is planning to build a new gas-fired power plant in Kearny along the Hackensack River! This power plant would run 24x7 for over 30 years and spew more toxic emissions in a region that already has very unhealthy levels of air pollution. Air pollution is a primary cause of asthma and other respiratory diseases, and exacerbates many other health problems, especially in children and older adults. The good news is that NJ Transit can redesign this project with a clean, renewable energy alternative. The Don’t Gas the Meadowlands Coalition - an advocacy group made up of dozens of North Jersey organizations - will hold a public educational forum on November 14th at 6:30 PM at the Kearny Library (and on Zoom), to share information about this proposal with residents in Kearny and the surrounding region.

What: Come learn about NJ Transit's plans to build a new gas plant in Kearny. Please join us to hear from Mayor Santos of Kearny, public health experts, and members of the Don’t Gas the Meadowlands Coalition who will present information on this project, its risks to residents and the environment, as well as a safe and clean energy alternative. We will also discuss our advocacy campaign and how, with your help, we can stop this proposal and ensure that NJ Transit does this project the right way, with a 21st-century renewable energy alternative - NOT a toxic gas-burning power plant.

Where: Kearny Public Library, 318 Kearny Ave, Kearny NJ 07032, and on Zoom

When: Monday, November 14th, 6:30 - 7:30 PM
