Come join us, to get a handle on what we can do to move New Jersey back into the forefront of America’s efforts to combat Climate Change. We will meet on Tuesday, July 26, 2016, at 6:30 PM in Room 202, Hepburn Hall (straight in from the main gate on Kennedy Blvd) at NJCU’s Main Campus.
This event is in two parts - Presentation + Film :-)
