Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) will be discussing policy issues and taking questions from the online audience in a Facebook Live event on Thursday, April 26 at 6:30 p.m., hosted by Action Together New Jersey (ATNJ). 

The event is the second in a series designed to give voters and activists direct access to elected representatives and candidates through online, town hall-style events.  ATNJ is hosting the series in order to encourage open dialogue and increase public engagement in the run-up to the midterm elections and beyond. Further interactive sessions will be announced in coming months. 

Questions will be accepted in advance and also taken during the live stream. The Q&A was organized by the ATNJ Environment Team following a meeting with Senator Menendez, during which he highlighted his environmental-protection and clean-energy initiatives.

“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. 

Anyone interested in watching and participating in the event can “Like” or “Follow” ATNJ’s public Facebook page at  www.facebook.com/ActionTogetherNJ in order to be notified by Facebook when the event goes live on April 26.
