NJ Working Families Alliance 2017 Platform

In November 2016, New Jersey Working Families Alliance held a Working Families Summit, developing a policy agenda to move the state’s working families forward.


More than 150 community leaders came together to create the policy platform

From the preamble:

NJ Working Families, its partners, and allies have convened to create a roadmap that addresses the rising inequality that plagues New Jersey working families. Working in collaboration with affiliates and organizations from across issue areas and regions of the state, we seek to develop a policy platform that promotes justice and equity. Centered around the issue areas of Tax Fairness, Economic Justice, Education, Civil Rights, and Environmental Justice, the aim is to identify key problems that perpetuate inequality across New Jersey and develop a list of goals that can retake the Garden State for the working class. By no means a comprehensive list, the following represents a set of goals that adopting organizations commit to help advocate for as they pursue their respective organizational goals.
