ADVOCATES FOR CHILDREN OF NEW JERSEY
Investments in our children reap results. Not just for one child, but for thousands of children all over New Jersey.
That is why Advocates for Children of New Jersey, in partnership with parents and community members, works with local, state, and federal leaders to develop solutions
that will give every child the chance to grow up safe, healthy, and educated. Our work results in better laws and policies, more effective funding, and stronger services for children and families.
HOW DOES ACNJ GIVE EVERY CHILD A CHANCE?
We Inform. ACNJ’s well-researched policy reports and publications inform the public and policymakers to advance solutions. Most notably, our NJ KIDS COUNT project provides critical data on child well-being to state leaders, advocates, and community members, using data to drive decisions that lead to smarter choices to help more children.
We Advocate. ACNJ works closely with state and federal lawmakers and policymakers to bolster their understanding and response to the needs of children and families.
We Elevate Voices. Through ACNJ, thousands of parents, caregivers, and young people have had their concerns shared with elected officials and other influential leaders, giving them a say in the decisions that drive their future.
WE NEED YOUR VOICE. GET INVOLVED TODAY.
Valuing the expertise of lived experiences, ACNJ empowers parents and youth advocates through the Parent Leadership Council and Newark Future Policymakers program. Their insight informs ACNJ's policy agenda, recognizing that solutions should both engage and be designed by those affected.
JOIN THE MOVEMENT TO REIMAGINE CHILD CARE
Child care is the backbone of our economy. In order for parents to work, they need safe, reliable care for their children. Without access to this critical support, the workforce will be impacted and businesses will pay the price.
Join the movement to #ReimagineChildCare so that care is affordable and accessible for all who need it. Child care is everyone's business! Visit reimaginechildcare.org to learn more.
