Institute President and CEO Ryan Haygood writes for the Star Ledger:

New Jersey is poised to serve as national bright light for progressive action.

At the Institute, our eyes are focused on this moment to work with our partners, our new governor, and elected officials to advance solutions to some of the greatest social and racial justice challenges of our time — including income inequality, reimagining youth justice, and building an inclusive democracy…

It is clear that change will happen, as it always has, from the ground up in our communities.

Together, we can lift up these critical issues to make New Jersey a standard bearer for social and racial justice.

Together, we can do social justice.
