All neighborhoods in New Jersey would be clean and safe environments, which produce clean energy and sustainability. One of the greatest resources we have in our state is the environment. It is also a resource we are morally opposed to claiming ownership of, but rather accept the humble call to be careful stewards of the earth.
Thus, we commit to:
1. Air quality in New Jersey must be improved through the regulation of businesses that are contributing to diminished air quality.
2. Water is a human right. We resist its privatization. Our public waterways must be better cared for and public water systems better maintained including lead decontamination.
3. Communities directly impacted by toxic waste, including plumes from industrial manufacturing, must be assisted financially. Superfund sites and toxic waste must be adequately remediated including ongoing oversight for areas where housing development cannot be allowed.
4. Food deserts must be eradicated in New Jersey. All communities should have access to healthy food, community gardens and shared green space.
5. Clean energy needs to be prioritized in New Jersey including incentives for cleaner vehicles and updated public transportation that encourages more efficient travel by commuters and makes public transportation a viable option for all living in New Jersey.
