Invest in our future by investing in Progress!

For over 25 years, New Jersey Policy Perspective has worked at the intersection of racial, social, and economic justice, advocating for policies and sound investments to secure a thriving future for everyone in our state.

We ground our work in equity and shared power. We endeavor to bring in partners, engage communities, and put our research into the hands of people and groups that too often are left out of the policy decisions which majorly impact health, economic security, and empowerment.

This year, NJPP is renewing our commitment to eliminate the cost barriers that have often excluded grassroots and community-based partners from participating in policy briefings, conferences, and other events. There will be no charge to attend any of our public events, including:

  • Budget and Brews, May 16, 2024
    Networking happy hour and budget panel, 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm, Cooper’s Riverview, Trenton, NJ
  • Progress 2024 Symposium, September 2024
    (Date to be Finalized)

Making these events free will help amplify diverse voices and better recognize the importance of the nonmonetary contributions of panelists, speakers, and coorganizers — ultimately creating space for our partners to connect with a broader network of potential funders, allies, and supporters.

We need your help to ensure that this vision becomes a sustainable reality. Invest in Progress today to help ensure that NJPP can offer all of these learning and networking opportunities at no cost. While support at any level is deeply appreciated and will be recognized accordingly, contributions of $500 to $25,000 will bring with them additional name or logo recognition opportunities in NJPP newsletters and e-blasts, online/on-site signage, spoken recognition at Progress events, and other engagement opportunities.
