Building ONE New Jersey

Building ONE New Jersey is a faith-based, grassroots coalition of groups from throughout New Jersey devoted to the idea that everyone who lives here has a stake in the economic and social well-being of our region, and of all the communities within it, not just his or her own. The existence of distressed and impoverished communities within New Jersey affects all residents, through increased crime, increased taxes, reduced economic growth, and a tendency for blight and poverty to “creep” into other towns. Thus the imperative to work together for the common good derives both from our deeply held values, notably concern for others, and from simple self-interest.
