            Who: Open and free to the public.  People who are concerned about the dangers to our health and safety because of current roll backs to environmental and climate regulations and the proposed defunding of the EPA are encouraged to attend this presentation to learn how to oppose the Trump administration’s regressive and dangerous policies.

“Forward Not Back, Central Jersey, an educational and advocacy group that formed in the wake of Donald Trump’s presidency and Republican control of Congress,  is dedicated to protecting the environment from the assaults we are currently experiencing and outright climate denial of this administration” states Tina Weishaus, a member of the Environmental and Climate Committee.

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote (Random House, 1965)
