Who We Are

New Jersey Policy Perspective (NJPP) is a nonpartisan think tank that drives policy change to advance economic, social, and racial justice through evidence-based, independent research, analysis, and strategic communications.

Why We’re Here

New Jersey thrives when all residents enjoy lives of dignity, opportunity, and economic security.

But, too many New Jerseyans struggle to have the basic building blocks of life: a decent place to live, education, good family-supporting jobs, child care, health care, transportation, and other essentials needed to build a secure future for themselves and their loved ones.

For too long, the policies and politics of New Jersey have fallen short, failing to equitably raise the required revenue and make the public investments necessary to break down structural barriers and put prosperity within everyone’s reach.

So everyone in our state has a thriving future, New Jersey Policy Perspective develops innovative policy ideas through evidence-based, independent research and engages in advocacy, analysis, strategic communications, and collaboration with partners to achieve a shared vision of economic justice.

When you give to NJPP, you power the research, communications, and partnership building necessary to make policy work for people, so every New Jerseyan can achieve their goal for a healthy and vibrant life.
