Newest Americans and Talking Eyes Media participated in the #marchforcleanair in solidarity with the Ironbound Community Corporation to stop the Aries sludge plant and the PVSC fracked gas power plant! We're committed to telling polluters to #stopdumpingonnewark! If you missed the march, you can still support by signing this petition urging Governor Phil Murphy and PVSC to live up to NJ's environmental justice goals and clean energy commitments by saying NO to new polluting projects!

We say no to a natural gas power plant in Newark!

Hey Newark! St. Stephan's Grace Community - ELCA needs your help! Hurricane Ida flooded the church's boiler room and both boilers need to be replaced and relocated higher in the building.

They provide free food and water distribution, Covid 19 testing and vaccination, community organizing, advocacy for immigrants, work safety training, cultural and artistic events, are just a few of the services they offer. With Winter approaching we are $20,000 short to do this vital project. All donations are tax-exempt and designated for this specific project and can only be used by the church to that end. Thank you for considering helping us out!
