About Us

Faith in New Jersey is a new and growing multi-faith and multi-racial network of faith leaders and faith communities working together to advance a social and economic justice agenda at the local, state and federal level.  Faith in New Jersey’s mission is to develop grassroots community leaders, analyze the policies that shape our communities, and mobilize faith voices and faith voters to effectively act on the prophetic call to build the Beloved Community.

Faith in New Jersey is working to equip faith leaders to move significant policy change that supports a shared vision where all people, regardless of their background, have access to:

  • Violence-free neighborhoods
  • Quality, affordable healthcare
  • A pathway to citizenship
  • Good jobs
  • Quality education
We are affiliated with the PICO National Network, which involves more than 1200 congregations in 17 states across the US in faith-based community organizing initiatives to reduce racial and economic disparities – making us one of the largest community-based efforts in the country.
