New Jersey Chapter

A Liveable New Jersey for All

We can do a lot to mobilize against climate change right here in New Jersey. Local actions can have far-reaching consequences. We’re working to keep dangerous, unnecessary gas pipelines from crisscrossing our state. We’ve helped shut down outdated dirty coal plants. We’re promoting wind and solar energy, clean transportation, and joining environmental justice communities in their fight to keep polluters from adding to their existing environmental burdens. 

We acknowledge that environmental action in New Jersey has a history of discriminatory impacts. We are working to ensure that our conservation efforts address the disproportionate burdens of environmental degradation and pollution that are experienced by low-income communities and communities of color. These residents deserve protection from climate-related flooding, toxic water pollutants, and unbreathable air. We’re working to help give them access to Electric School Buses for their schools, housing free from mold, access to solar energy, and green jobs.  These are just some of the areas where the New Jersey Chapter is working for a better environment for our residents.

Global Change Starts with Local Action

Across the state, Sierra Club members work in geographically focused groups to address local issues. Group volunteers host educational activities and outings and work on political and conservation activities: Find a local Sierra Club group that meets near you. 

Explore the Outdoors

Understanding the value of preserving our precious resources happens naturally when people have the chance to experience the outdoors. The New Jersey Chapter sponsors hikes and other outings, and also has programs for youth from communities that have limited access to the outdoors. Join us in exploring New Jersey’s beautiful open spaces.

Global Wind Day

The New Jersey Chapter of the Sierra Club, NJ Wind Works Coalition, and various environmental and environmental justice partners will be hosting an event to celebrate Global Wind Day and show support for responsible offshore wind development and clean energy more broadly at Liberty State Park.

This family-friendly event will have music, a speaking program, offshore wind coloring books, pinwheels and kites, and more, all with the iconic New York City skyline and Lady Liberty in the background! We encourage folks to bring family and friends and make the day at one of New Jersey's most treasured urban state parks and enjoy the June sunshine and outdoors with us. 

Stay tuned for more details and feel free to contact Jackie Greger with any questions at

Environmental and Social Justice

New Jersey’s immigrant, Latinx, Black, and Indigenous residents have endured decades of discriminatory policies, leading their communities to be surrounded by heavy industry and used as dumping grounds for hazardous waste. Asthma mortality rates in New Jersey are three times higher among Black and Latinx residents. Lead-contaminated water and high air pollution rates have plagued communities of color, communities that often receive both fewer resources and services.

Take One Action Today

Help us preserve our climate and protect our communities. Here are some more simple, quick actions you can take on issues that matter to you. We also engage in political action to elect the environmental champions and pass the legislation that will meet the demands of the climate emergency. We need everyone to speak out and get involved.
