REGISTER NOW AND JOIN US FOR A GUIDED TOUR OF PORT COMMUNITIES AND THE PORT

Organizers are pleased to kick off the conference with a guided bus tour of two Newark neighborhoods, the Ironbound and the South Ward, as well as Port Newark. Rutgers Center for Environmental Exposures and Disease (CEED) Public Health and Our Ports: The Road to Clean Air Conference will be held on Friday, October 26th at Rutgers Center for Law and Justice located at 123 Washington Street.

The Ironbound Community Corporation, the New Jersey Environmental Justice Alliance and Clean Water Action will give the tour from the community perspective. Tour goers will get a bird’s eye view of what it’s like to live in the Ironbound or the South Ward, right next to the largest port on the East Coast.  Public Health professionals from Rutgers University and Mt. Sinai will speak to the health effects of the chemicals in air emissions on people, especially children. The New York New Jersey Port Authority will accompany us into the Port and share what they are doing to “green” the Port.

Don’t miss this opportunity. In order to reserve your seat on the bus, register for the conference by Thursday, October 18th.
