The New Jersey Regional Coalition is a statewide community organizing group in NJ. Membership consists principally of religious congregations and judicatories, with some civic groups, non-profit advocacy groups, and labor unions. The NJ Regional Coalition was the only grassroots organization to successfully promote NJ school funding reform (passed and signed 1/08). The NJ Regional Coalition also successfully waged a three-year campaign to eliminate the outsourcing of affordable housing (a change widely described as "impossible") and reform the state's Fair Housing Act (passed and signed 7/08). In 9/09, NJRC was a founding sponsor of the Building One America campaign, and national summit on regional opportunity.
