On February 27, 1997, Jon Shure incorporated a fledgling think tank named New Jersey Policy Perspective. From a one-person operation run out of a home office and post office box, NJPP has grown tremendously in scope and reach.

Together, we have come so far and accomplished so much to build a more equitable Garden State. NJPP has been at the forefront of efforts to secure a thriving future for everyone in our state — from a $15 minimum wage, to paid sick leave, to higher quality and more affordable health care, to pay equity, and beyond. But no matter how much progress we have made, drastic disparities still persist along the lines of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation. The past two and a half decades are truly just the beginning.

By sponsoring our silver anniversary year, you can help ensure that our work to advance economic justice and racial equity will continue for the next 25 years and beyond.

25th Anniversary sponsors will be invited to an array of exclusive online and in-person gatherings, policy briefings with NJPP leadership and analysts, and will be recognized online and in a variety of print materials. The celebration will culminate with two major, in-person events:

25th Anniversary Gala: September 22, 2022
Progress 2022 Conference: September 23, 2022

Additional sponsorship levels and individual tickets will be made available in June 2022. To learn more, please contact Jennifer Fekete-Donners, Development Director, at jennifer@njpp.org.
