Why We’re Here
NJPP engages in research, analysis and strategic communications with the goal of a New Jersey where everyone can achieve to his or her full potential in an economy that offers a widely-shared, rising standard of living. Our efforts reflect these fundamental principles:
- Government has an active role to play in helping people reach their full potential.
- Reliance on the market isn’t enough to bring prosperity to all.
- A strong public sector is the cornerstone of a civil society.
New Jersey is at a crossroads. It’s not clear that the gains of the past will be protected or that the building process, far from complete, will continue. Public debate occurs within narrow bounds.
NJPP is a nonpartisan, non-profit organization that has worked since its creation in 1997 to bring a progressive voice into the debate in New Jersey. We believe that to win debates you must start at the beginning to actively shape the terms. NJPP nurtures and advances ideas. We analyze current policy issues in a timely fashion. We work with grassroots organizations to build alliances for change. We seek greater public awareness of the real choices New Jersey faces, honest debate over solutions and a climate where progressive principles can prevail.
