Morris Area
NJ Together

On Saturday, December 19th at 11am -- join New Jersey Together leaders in Morris County as we watch the PBS Documentary "The Definition of Insanity" together. It tells the story of Judge Steven Leifman & Miami-Dade County's pioneering "Criminal Mental Health Project & Jail Diversion Program." We'll discuss what it can mean for our work in Morris County and across New Jersey afterwards.

 

 

All are welcome.

Listening Campaign!

 

On June 22nd, 140+ people from more than 15 religious congregations & non-profits in Morris County came together to launch a listening campaign. Attendees committed to listen to more than 2,000 people.

In late October, when we reported back, we had listened to more than 2,400 people in Morris County.

It's not too late to tell your story. Join us in this work in one of the following ways:

  1. Share your story using the survey link below or here (in English & Spanish).

  2. Encourage 5-10 others you know to fill out the survey (& follow up with them!) or fill it out for them while you're on the phone.

  3. Download the paper survey in English or in Spanish & ask people to fill it out in person.

In 2018, religious congregations and non-profits in the Morris Area began to discuss what it would mean to organize across lines of difference. This work accelerated in 2019, and leaders are preparing to launch our work together in a new way in 2020.

If you are interested in getting involved or involving your religious congregation or non-profit, reach out to us at morris@njtogether.org. You can also contact one of the leaders below.
