The Port Authority of NY/NJ Board has authorized its Executive Director to negotiate a lease with Amazon for a regional Air Hub at Newark Airport, without seeking any community input.

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

Sign the pledge for good jobs and healthy communities, and stay informed:
