WHO WE ARE
New Jersey Together is a growing broad-based, multi-faith coalition in northern New Jersey. We challenge ordinary people in our region to identify problems facing their neighborhoods and city, connect individuals and organizations to multiply their power, and mobilize people to bring about creative and effective change.
New Jersey Together is a 501c3 non-profit affiliated with the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), the nation's first and largest network of multi-faith community organizations. The IAF partners with religious congregations and civic organizations at the local level to build broad-based organizing projects; we have seven decades of experience winning tough campaigns for change including passing the nation's first living wage law in Baltimore, securing more than $1 billion of Chromium cleanup in Jersey City, and building 6,000 affordable, owner-occupied Nehemiah homes across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
