Ride the bus and join climate and clean energy activists from all over the state for the 2nd annual Global Wind Day action. This year we will rally in Atlantic City and demand that Governor Christie move offshore wind forward. We cannot afford more climate disasters. We need clean energy solutions and we need activists like you to get to a clean energy future.

We hope you'll consider riding with us!   Don't worry about directions or parking.  We are stopping at several locations in Middlesex, Monmouth and Ocean Counties to bring people to the event.  We'll drop you off in front of the venue and pick you up when the event ends.  Here are the pickup locations <UPDATE LINK>:
