Be a Voice for Kids!

We need you to make a difference for New Jersey's children. Here are three things you can do.

Children can't vote. They have no political influence. And they can’t tell our state leaders what they need. That’s why we need caring people like you to speak up for kids to make a real difference in their lives. Help us send the message that children must be a top priority for our local, county, state and federal elected officials and other leaders.

1. Stay informed. Sign Up to receive ACNJ’s monthly Enews for updates. You can also select to join our our advocacy alerts list to receive notifications and easily send messages to your elected officials and other key decision-makers on behalf of children.

2. Tell your friends and connect with us on social media. Like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Youtube. And be sure to share our emails and social media posts with your friends, colleagues and others. Encourage them to get involved

3. Donate. We accept no government funding for our advocacy work. This enables us to be independent and non‐political. Your support makes this possible. Please consider making a tax‐deductible online donation today.
