Environmental Justice Congressional Candidates Forum

Hosted by WeACT for Environmental Justice

The 2016 election is around the corner and people are getting involved in the democratic process nationwide.
 
As Rep. Charlie Rangel retires from the US Congress, we have a great opportunity in District 13 to engage our community and the candidates on the issues that matter most. 
 
There are a variety of issues facing district residents that impact their health and the environment. WE ACT for Environmental Justice wants residents and organizations in Northern Manhattan to know where the candidates stand on the environment and the future of the district.
 
Please join us for a congressional candidates forum on environmental justice!
