Start: Monday, November 20, 2023• 9:15 AM
Location:Statehouse Annex Courtyard•137 W. State St, Trenton, NJ 08608 US

In response to the deepening climate emergency and our growing calls for action, new legislation in New Jersey (S2978/A4658) has been introduced with the stated goal of achieving 100% clean electricity by 2035. This bill can be a huge step forward in our fight against climate change and environmental injustice. However, the fossil fuel industry and its allies are hard at work, waging a massive lobbying and misinformation campaign for expensive new subsidies in the bill for more dirty energy development. With this legislation expected to be prioritized shortly after election day, we need our elected officials to hear from us loud and clear.
RSVP to join EmpowerNJ at our state capitol on 11/20 for a BIG rally and lobby day for 100% truly clean energy by 2035!
Schedule for the day:
9:15 Rally and Press Conference in the Courtyard in front of the Statehouse Annex (137 W. State Street)
9:45 Enter the Statehouse for strategic lobbying activities
10:00 - 1:00 Lobby our legislators and optional lobby training
1:15 Closing press conference, debrief and discuss our next steps in the campaign1:45 End of day of action
Whether you join us for the opening rally and press conference outside, the lobby day inside the Statehouse, (or both!), we need you with us for this critical and timely day of action. We'll be organizing car and train pools to Trenton from locations across the state. RSVP today and we'll share transportation options near you as they're organized.
Dirty energy technologies like trash incineration, burning/non fuel-cell hydrogen, carbon capture, and mis-named RNG have no place in a 100% clean electricity future. They would perpetuate the use of fossil fuels while further polluting our air and increasing ratepayer costs at a time when energy bills are already very high. New Jersey needs legislation that adheres to our State’s climate and environmental justice policies, and delivers the clean energy future we urgently need.
Join us on 11/20 in Trenton as we launch our campaign for a strong clean energy bill with a rally and lobby day! We'll be in touch with all RSVP's to share more details as the date approaches.
