    2017 accomplishments and forward to 2018!

    Posted by Kevin Walsh

    After more than a decade of delays, the logjam finally broke in 2017. Because of our work and because of your support, the widespread disregard of New Jersey’s fair housing laws has ended.

    With your help, 2018 promises to be another year in which we make New Jersey fairer, more affordable, and more racially and economically inclusive.
