Dear Community Member/Partner,

There are some important events coming up that we wanted to share with you:
People’s Climate March Sunday Sept. 21 in NYC

We invite you to join thousands on Sunday September 21, 2014 at the largest People’s Climate Justice March in our history.  A day before the United Nations summit on climate change starts in NYC, the People’s Climate March will serve to push our local and national leaders to adopt real and just climate change solutions that work for both the people and the planet.

The Ironbound Community Corporation (ICC) will be offering FREE TRANSPORTATION from Newark to NYC and back! ICC will also be offering free breakfast, lunch, and a t-shirt for the march.

Keeping “The Port Authority of NY and NJ” (PANYNJ) Accountable

On Wednesday, September 24, 2014, the Coalition for Healthy Ports will be attending the Port of New York & New Jersey Clean Air Strategy environmental and community group stakeholder meeting. This meeting will be an opportunity to engage PANYNJ about the issues affecting the health of residents in port communities and recommendations on how they can improve the environment. The meeting is scheduled from 10:00 am to Noon at the New York Shipping Association (NYSA) Training Center Auditorium located at 1210 Corbin Street, Elizabeth, NJ 07201.
