True Justice: “Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality” follows Bryan Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, and his struggle to create greater fairness in the criminal justice system. The film shows how racial injustice emerged, evolved and continues to threaten the country, and challenges viewers to confront it. Watch the trailer.

NJ Single Use Plastic Ban Bill: Take Quick, Easy, Urgent Action!
NJ’s statewide plastic bag ban bill is on life support but can still be resusciated with a quick jolt! Most details have been worked but there’s only a few days left to seal the deal. In sum: A4330/S2776 will put a statewide ban on disposable carryout bags, polystyrene foam food containers, and make disposable plastic straws available only upon request. More details here.
Take Action - Ask your legislators to pass a strong ban on these polluting single-use disposables.
Please call or email NJ’s to top three political leaders and tell them to finish the job, work TOGETHER to pass a strong ban bill before Jan. 14.
A short message to let them know your views would be much appreciated; if this doesn’t go through, we have to basically start from scratch. Thank you for your help!
