Make a Donation to the Institute
New Jersey is poised to serve as a national light for transformative change.
But we need your help to make this vision a reality.
Policy and systemic change are never quick or easy.
We need partners like you to advance the policies that help vulnerable communities thrive.
For 20 years, the Institute has been doing social justice through research, public education, advocacy, and collaborative partnerships to develop lasting solutions to vexing urban issues.
Our current focus is on closing NJ's staggering racial wealth gap and connecting urban residents of color to full-time, meaningful work and wealth; advancing a progressive and policy-driven agenda to expand the right to vote, build democratic power and ensure political accountability; and advocating for the transformative reform of NJ’s criminal justice system and reimagining traditional policing practices.
This moment provides us with a mandate that must guide us each day: to realize social justice, we must do social justice.
Here at the Institute, we are clear that change will happen, as it always has, from the ground up in our communities.
