Doug O’Malley is Interim Director of Environment New Jersey, a statewide, citizen-based environmental advocacy organization. O’Malley says we must prepare for rising sea levels and reduce the causes of global warming. His organization views Superstorm Sandy as an opportunity to adopt new policies that will lead to clean up and protect the Shore for generations.

O’Malley was one of 60 people who participated in WHYY’s Ready for Next Time? Rethinking the Shore After Sandy forums. It was held at our studios on Monday, July 15, 2013. During each session we set up our “Two Minute Testimonial” video booth. This gives anyone a chance to share their thoughts about the Jersey shore.

Our next event is Tues, July 30, 2013Middle Township High School300 Atlantic Ave.Cape May Court House, NJDoors open at 6:00 p.m.Forum begins promptly at 6:45 p.m.
