The Anti-Poverty Network of New Jersey has launched a new campaign (and accompanying website) called Stories of New Jersey to call attention to New Jerseyans who struggle to meet their basic needs, and highlight the programs that help put food on their tables.
According to the recently released report by Legal Services of New Jersey, almost one-third of New Jersey residents live in poverty. This campaign will show the stories behind these grim statistics – and what can be done about it.
Each month a new profile will be featured on the Stories of New Jersey website. Going forward these stories can be resources for reporters, legislators and community members to see the people behind the statistics. To participate in the campaign please contact Elizabeth at email@example.com.
