Please purchase tickets to attend and sponsorships in support of our work and to recognize our awardees. Building One New Jersey is the only organization in the state relentlessly fighting for racial justice, social inclusion, and economic opportunity for all people through direct action, civic engagement, leadership training, and the advancement of transformative public policies. Our work on school segregation over the past two years not only made “good trouble;” it yielded results. 
Though we have much more to do, we need to celebrate our recent wins while building our capacity and financial support for the coming year and the struggle ahead against the formable but surmountable twin-evil of racial exclusion and economic inequality.
To both celebrate and support this work go here to buy tickets and to purchase a sponsorship.  
Thank you,
Rev. Willie Dwayne Francois III
Chair, NJ Coalition Against Racial Exclusion (NJ-CARE) / Building One New Jersey
