Good Jobs – Clean Air – Safe and Healthy Communities

In August 2021, the Port Authority of NY/NJ Board authorized its Executive Director to enter into negotiations with Amazon Air on a ground lease for a regional Air Hub.

We need good jobs and healthy communities in Newark and Elizabeth and all communities surrounding the airport. Additional truck and air traffic will increase harmful emissions into our communities. Our health and safety must be our top priority, and the jobs that Amazon brings must be good jobs for local residents.
