This is group is part of the resistance to the wave of oppressive and undemocratic moves by the Trump adminstration. We will focus on the making the state of New Jersey a better place for civil rights. But we are clear that there a connection to national issues too. Anyone interested in joining up with others who want to advance the cause of civil rights, police reform, criminal justice reform, unjust incarceration, ending voter supression laws and affirmative action is welcome.
Dear Civil Rights Supporters,
Please be advised that the racial and ethnic impact statement (REIS) bill passed the NJ Legislature last month and now moves to the Governor’s desk. We still need your help to make sure he signs it into law!
Governor Christie only has until July 10th to act, but he could make a decision at any moment. Please TAKE ACTION NOW and tell Governor Christie to sign the REIS bill without delay.
As you know, racial and ethnic impact statements are critical to addressing the racial disparities in New Jersey’s criminal justice system. New Jersey has the worst racial disparities within its incarcerated population in the country. This legislation is an important first step to addressing this critical issue.
TAKE ACTION NOW and tell Governor Christie to support this important legislation!
