U.S. Senator Cory Booker will launch his 2021 Jersey Summer Road Trip with a stop today Tamerlaine Sanctuary & Preserve in Sussex County.
“Listening to New Jerseyans about their concerns, their ideas, and their priorities is vital to effectively serving them,” Booker said. “The feedback I get on these stops will help inform my fight in the Senate for real solutions to the biggest challenges facing our state and our country.”
The sanctuary and preserve in was founded in 2013 by Gabrielle Stubbert and Peter Nussbaum to provide a home for animals connected to the food system who have previously been neglected and abused.
“Clucking hens, crowing roosters, quacking ducks, oinking pigs, turkeys, goats, cows, honking geese, and over 250 animals that call Tamerlaine Sanctuary and Preserve their home,” the Tamerlaine website says. “All of them with their own unique personality and personal history, including animals rescued from factory farms, ritual sacrifices, urban slaughterhouses, and found abandoned.”
The Montague-based non-profit also focuses on animal protection and land conservation. It is located on the 336-acre Westfall Farm that was originally built in 1774.
According to Booker’s office, the senator will make several stops over the next two weeks to focus on enhancing local businesses, encouraging more people to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, regional infrastructure investments, and assurances that all New Jerseyans have “equitable access” to healthy and nutritious food.”
