The Big Picture: West Hudson In Action
Community, Conversation and Cleanup - Kearny, NJ Sunday August 15, 11:00 am
We’ve partnered with the PSL New Jersey and the Young Ecosocialists to bring a community cleanup and discussion event to West Hudson on Sunday the 15th of August. We will meet at the corner of Kearny Ave. and Johnston Ave. in Kearny, a shared meeting point of our three West Hudson towns.
The focus of the action is to consider why so much pollution in the first place? The discussion will be short, maybe 20 min, to allow for community members to weigh in on our mutual experiences under Capitalism, and what it means for the environment.
Discourse will be followed by a couple notable environmental justice activists to get us excited, and subsequently by a community clean up where we will each take supplied materials and pick up around the shared neighborhoods in Kearny, East Newark, and Harrison.
Everyone and anyone in the community is welcome and invited if the idea of meaningful discussion and a Cleaner, Greener, and More Equitable West Hudson appeals to them.

Fellow Greens and allies we need your help to table at the JC Pride Festival 2021 event. We have participated in the event for years and the response is phenomenal. We are asking volunteers arrive at 12:30 to setup and work in shifts to cover all day. This event is huge and usually draws a lot of questions which will lead to support for our party and candidates.
We will have the Hoffman/Warburton campaign there to assist. Please sign up and share with anyone you know who would be interested through our Facebook event here: https://fb.me/e/3Eb2a2Sy0
