As part of our mission to empower and protect immigrant communities, NJAIJ is a proud member of the Fair Districts coalition and fights for racial equity in the congressional and legislative redistricting process. NJAIJ believes that having your district fairly represent your community is essential for ensuring every community gets the representation and resources they deserve.
In the 2020 Census, New Jersey successfully maintained it's congressional representation in Washington D.C. The state's population growth was 100% due to communities of color, yet these numbers have yet to be reflected in elected representatives or in policy priorities at the state and federal level.
NJAIJ joins this space to fight for racial equity maps that are drawn based on input from racial justice advocates, community stakeholders, and everyday people who have a vision for a fair, equitable, and just future.
