on PDNJ Updates and NJ Progressive News
We are a diverse, energetic, dedicated coalition that fights for fairness in politics and true justice for all. Since its founding in August of 2019, PDNJ has taken root as one of the foremost progressive advocacy organizations in the state.
Through the undue influence of corporations, wealth inequality, and political corruption, we find ourselves wholly unrepresented by New Jersey’s politicians. A government which is not responsive to the concerns of hard working families is incapable of addressing their concerns. We have the highest property taxes in the country in exchange for an underfunded and segregated education system. A majority of our population recognizes racial injustice and climate change as major issues, yet we struggle for clean drinking water and access to public transportation. The problems our community face are systemic and unchanging - it is time for new leadership.
For New Jerseyans to seize the movement for justice and equity that is sweeping the country, together we must build well-informed and active communities which must organize, protest, and vote. Through our education and training workshops, we are empowering new and diverse leaders and organizers to take charge of the political process and the issues that drive the progressive movement here in NJ. Through our field and political organizing we are providing the resources necessary for any candidate who will fight for the values of our communities to win their election, and represent us in government.
Abolish The Line Lawsuit
Through our Legal Defense Fund, for which we raised over $30,000, we led the charge to launch a lawsuit against multiple county clerks to abolish the line.
NJ CAN 2020 Victory!
With an eye on racial justice and ending a disastrous drug war against our communities of color, we were elated to do our part in the NJCAN Coalition to legalize the adult use of cannabis.
