Despite the disruption in our usual campaigning work, environmental justice groups are leading the way to create new experiences to connect, discuss, and take action towards social injustice.
A coalition of New-Jersey organizers would love to invite you and your community to join an advanced screening and conversation of the new award-winning documentary THE CONDOR AND THE EAGLE and Indigenous-led initiative – Women’s Health and Mother Earth: The Invisible Costs of Fossil Fuels – hosted by Northern New Jersey NOW, North Jersey Sierra Group, the Drew University Environmental Action League (DEAL) and the Ramapough-Lenape Nation. This award-winning film shares the stories of Native environmentalists and indigenous women leaders who are catalyzing an unparalleled global response to climate change and environmental injustice. The film documents the negative effects that industry- generated climate change, fossil fuel production and transport have upon indigenous people, low-income communities and our Mother earth. The panel discussion that follows highlights the disproportional affects that pollution has upon the health of women within these communities and the actions that grassroots activists within Northern New Jersey NOW, North Jersey Sierra Group, the Drew University Environmental Action League (DEAL) and the Ramapough-Lunappe Nation are taking to heal those most effected by the actions of corporate polluters. Donations will enable Northern NJ NOW to establish a fund to help low income women, indigenous women and women of color in industrialized communities pay for unmet healthcare costs and to support the Ramapough-Lunappe Nation in its struggle to clean up sacred lands polluted by the Ford Motor Company.
This event is inclusive, free to those who can’t afford it. For all others, suggested donations on a sliding scale of $15-100 are requested in lieu of a flat ticket price.

With the catastrophic threats of climate change looming, Indigenous people are uniting in a transcontinental movement, taking ambitious action to drive down greenhouse gas emissions and protect historically marginalized communities from displacement and disease stemming from environmental racism. We truly believe what the world needs now is what these leaders do every day. We hope you can join us for this extraordinary event.
