Jersey city together

Launched publicly in April 2016, Jersey City Together is a broad-based chapter of New Jersey Together. JCT launched with 890+ leaders present at Old Bergen Church after listening to 3,000 people in Jersey City. Since that time, JCT leaders have listened to thousands more and trained hundreds to act on their interests. The three primary areas where we focus are around housing affordability, education, and public safety/criminal justice. Learn more about our institutions & strategy team below.
