WEC Campaigns

Forward, Not Back is a campaign to defeat bipartisan attacks on decades of New Jersey's landmark protections. The campaign has two platforms:

Save Our Safeguards

For decades New Jersey enacted landmark environmental and worker protection laws that led other states and the federal government to follow suit. New Jersey's environmental and workplace safety and health safeguards are under attack.

Healthy Schools Now!

Every school day in New Jersey, children, teachers and school staff face conditions that can cause illness or injury and that make it harder to teach and to learn. Put New Jerseyans to work modernizing healthy public schools. Get involved!
