Jersey Renews is proud to stand in solidarity with the Amalgamated Transit Union, The Labor Network for Sustainability, and allies for Transit Equity. On February 6, we will demand that all New Jersey residents have access to high-quality public transit run on clean, renewable energy.
As we transition to a clean energy economy, we must also guarantee that everyone has the right to free or affordable public transit regardless of age, race, or class. We support the rights of workers to organize in the sectors that will build infrastructure and that will operate and maintain our public transit systems. Building and expanding public transit can help move us away from our dependence on fossil fuels.
Electrifying transportation systems can promote healthier communities, reduce air pollution and improve air quality for workers, commuters, and community members, provide good jobs, and help us confront climate change. Join us and show your support to #electrifyNJ!
