Make the Road New Jersey builds the power of immigrant, working-class & Latinx communities to achieve dignity and respect through community organizing, high-quality legal services, policy innovation and transformative education. Founded in 2014. Make the Road New Jersey’s centers in Elizabeth, Perth Amboy, Passaic and satellite hub in Newark are welcoming spaces for community organizing, leadership development and legal, health and educational services. Every week, hundreds of poor and working class immigrants and people of color – young people and adults – come together to fight for dignity and respect in our communities.
Annually, Make the Road New Jersey has mobilized more than 15,000 people to take action to win landmark immigrant and workerin support of immigrant and workers’ rights policies in New Jersey and beyond. Our legal services, health outreach and educational programming reach more than 100,000 low income immigrants and people of color with critical, life sustaining services and trasformational education.
