Get involved in our work on criminal justice & mass incarceration
Jersey City Together & New Jersey Together launched a campaign to address issues related to criminal justice & mass incarceration. This took place after our team listened to more than 500 people who were directly impacted the issue -- in our congregations, through local non-profits and parents' groups, and on the streets.
We heard repeated themes, and conducted further research to identify the scale of the need. Conservatively, more than 50,000 current Jersey City residents have spent time in jail or prison. Across New Jersey, that number is more than 1 million.
Everyone should fill out the contact information. Individuals should fill out the first part of the survey. Institutions (congregations, non-profits, and other organizations) should fill out the second part.
