This is a huge step towards removing the barriers that keep Tribal Nations from accessing federal funding to support the needs of their communities and to fully exercise their inherent sovereignty.

New Jersey open spaces play a critical role for our communities and economy. We’re about to lose a major source of funding for this valuable resource this month unless it gets renewed. We must tell our lawmakers to protect this dedicated source funding for these spaces.

On this International Day of Persons with Disabilities, let’s promote the importance of understanding the barriers faced by persons with disabilities.

Congratulations to Sunni Vargas, our December Young Dem of the Month! Sunni's dedication to environmental protection, grassroots organizing, and social justice is truly inspiring. As a first-generation college student at Monmouth University, Sunni pursued a Bachelor's degree in political science with a concentration in international relations. Her involvement with the university's policy debate team and independent study on Palestinian-Israeli multi-state sustainable and equitable policy solutions highlights her dedication to policy research, analysis, and promoting global understanding.

Her involvement as an elected Democratic County Committeewoman and her roles in several local Democratic organizations demonstrate her commitment to active participation in the political landscape. Joining New Jersey League of Conservation Voters was a natural fit for Sunni, as she sought to be part of a growing organization with a welcoming culture. Sunni's dedication to educating others about offshore wind power, green energy, and environmental policy reflects her passion for creating a sustainable future. She is determined to build community power and expand environmental justice in all spaces.

Congratulations again, Sunni! Your unwavering commitment to environmental protection, grassroots organizing, and social justice is commendable. We are proud to have you as a member of our team, and we look forward to witnessing the continued impact you will make in the fight against climate change and environmental injustice!
