Moving Forward Network member Clean Water Action is one of the most muscular environmental justice groups in America, with more than a million members and a 40 year track record of success.
Clean Water Action is a key player in EJ in New York and New Jersey, where it has led the way on a wide variety of issues, including cleaning up diesel exhaust air pollution emitted by the Port of New York and New Jersey.
Their current battle? To protect residents on both New York and New Jersey ends of the Bayonne Bridge from environmental and health assault by the port authority as they raise the bridge.
