“We appreciate the opportunity to continue the discussion of our shared priorities and concerns with the senator,” said organizer Christine Clarke, Environmental Policy Director with ATNJ. “Addressing anthropogenic climate change is the great challenge of our generation, and we need accountable leadership taking decisive action to protect us all,” she added. 

“As progressive New Jersey activists, it’s important for us not only to voice our concerns to our elected representatives, but to hear from them about legislation that’s in the pipeline and where they stand on the issues,” said Uyen “Winn” Khuong, Executive Director of ATNJ. “Streaming Q&As like this one with Senator Menendez and our previous one with Senator Booker bring the legislators right into our living rooms to speak to us directly. ATNJ is pleased to be able to facilitate this kind of interaction.” 

Questions for Senator Menendez may be submitted in advance by email to christinec@atnj.org​ or presented during the broadcast in the comments section for the video once it goes ‘Live.’ Staff will be standing by during the broadcast to gather questions from the viewing audience.
