We work to identify and amplify candidates that champion policies that provide low- and moderate-income families the support they need. We have a long-term commitment to advancing policies and programs that strengthen racial, social, and economic equality. We evaluate candidates for their commitment to these issues and hold elected officials accountable for their promises. This process has created opportunities for stronger and more effective progressive leaders to be elected and fight for the needs of working families
Electing Progressive Leaders
Nurses in NJ are fighting for fairer work conditions and safer staffing levels for themselves and their patients. This legislation would require hospitals to mandate how many patients a nurse can care for on each unit.
The FAIR Act would prohibit the use of education, occupation, and credit score as rating factors in automobile insurance underwriting. This will help make auto insurance more affordable for good drivers in New Jersey and eliminate unfair discrimination in auto insurance markets that disproportionately impacts people of color.
Private loans typically cost more and lack the basic protections federal student loans offer, leading low-income borrowers to default and risk collection lawsuits. This legislation would enhance protections for borrowers and cosigners.
