Environmental activist Jane Nogaki retires from NJEF

Jane Nogaki, who has been advocating for environmental issues before local and state government for more than 30 years, has retired from the New Jersey Environmental Federation where she was founding chairperson and also had served as Pesticide Campaign Coordinator and South Jersey Organizer.

During her 33 years of activism, Nogaki mobilized public support for NJ's Workers and Community Right to Know Act, Clean Water Enforcement Act, pesticide notification regulations, and the School Integrated Pest Management Act.

“While we are saddened by our loss (and honestly not quite sure how we will function without her), we want to celebrate and build on her more than 30 years of environmental activism and accomplishments,” said Amy Goldsmith, state director for the New Jersey Environmental Federation

“Jane had a unique ability to not only listen to others and understand their plight, help others with their local battle, but more importantly teach and encourage them create their own voice and, in turn, become activists themselves. If there is one thing that makes Jane stand apart from the rest, it’s that she not only used her mind, but her gentle and fierce heart, to fight for what is right in this world” Goldsmith said.
