Join us on October 21st!
Join Morris Area Together as we launch a broader push to hold ModivCare (formerly Logisticare) accountable for their treatment of people who use their transportation services. We will also hear other issue updates.

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 faith & non-profit leaders conducted a listening campaign in 2020.
In May 2021, we launch Morris Area Together with 600+ leaders present.
Our work to date
In recent months -- in the midst of a pandemic -- Morris Area Together leaders have been active in addressing issues, listening, and conducting research. Some of the initial progress (prior to the planned launch of our organization this spring) includes:
Expanding access to food for low-income families during spring break, working with the Morris School District.
Pressing landlords to pass along mortgage forbearance to renters in need.
Setting up a rent-relief fund for struggling Morris County families.
Launching a push related to the stark, racial disparities in the criminal justice system in Morris County.
