ABOUT ACTION TOGETHER NEW JERSEY:
How We Began
The 2016 election inspired millions of Americans to fight for the progressive values that they believe in. Action Together New Jersey, part of the grassroots national network, Action Together Network (ATN), was formed as thousands of New Jersey residents banded together to help secure a more inclusive and progressive future for our state and our country.
Who We Are
We are a growing grassroots group from all over the Garden State, and we share a passion for equal rights, for progressive ideals, and for building a brighter future for all Americans. We are your neighbors, your friends, and your coworkers. And while we don’t always see eye to eye on every issue (just look at the pork roll/Taylor ham divide), we combine our talents, our smarts, and our scrappy, underdog mentality to make Jersey Strong—and our nation stronger.
A few of the causes we value and fight for include:
Racial Justice, Reproductive Rights, Environmental Concerns, Women’s Rights, LGBTQ+ Rights, Common Sense Gun Laws, Immigration, Education, Healthcare, Social Services, Criminal Justice Reform, Electoral Reform, Finance and Economic Reform, smart Foreign Policy, Workers’ Rights, Civil Rights Protection and Expansion, and Military and Veterans Issues.
What We Do
We fight for civil liberties, social justice, and environmental protection.
We advocate for equality and human rights for all people.
We protect those who face discrimination, disenfranchisement, and persecution.
We fight for legislation that helps the working class, and supports equal pay and a living wage for all workers.
We support and collaborate with existing advocacy groups who share our beliefs.
We will fight to elect progressive leaders who share our values.
And we will fight against elected officials who don’t.
To accomplish these goals, we look for ways to organize and take action, through working with (or against) our representatives, organizing rallies and boycotts, sponsoring social justice projects, and collaborating with other advocacy groups we believe in to help bring about the change we want to see.
We’re a growing grassroots group of like-minded individuals in the Garden State who have banded together to support progressive values and ideals, advocate for equality and human rights, and help elect leaders who share our views.
