Highlands Advocates

The New Jersey Highlands Coalition depends on dedicated, local representatives in communities across the region and is continuously expanding its network and developing the Highlands Advocate Program.  

Through the Highlands Advocate Program, individuals can learn about the critical issues impacting the Highlands region and how to stand up for resource protection and sustainable development. The program is completely voluntary and training is conducted through a series of self-directed slideshows and webinars provided below, we will add more as we develop them.

Local advocates connect with other activists and receive support from the Coalition to increase their effectiveness in their community to create positive change.

Through this collaboration between the Coalition and Advocates we will establish a more agile and informed network that can organize efficiently and effectively against inappropriate development and threats to the valuable resources of the region.

The Coalition is always looking for motivated community members throughout the Highlands and in Northern New Jersey to participate in this exciting program. As a Highlands Advocate you will also be invited to special networking events and in person workshops, information about those will be updated soon.

If you are interested in learning more and becoming involved as a Highlands Advocate in your community, please contact Zachary Cole by phone at (973) 588-7190 ext. 3 or by e-mail at zac@njhighlandscoalition.org.
