Jersey City Together Continues Push for Equity in Affordable Housing, Gun Safety and Education

Jersey City Together Continues Push for Equity in Affordable Housing, Gun Safety and Education

Friday, December 14, 2018
Jersey City Together
 
More than 500 Jersey City Together (JCT) leaders came together to call for increased action by the city and state’s elected officials to address affordable housing, gun safety and education. Stories were shared by leaders of terrible conditions they face daily. A high school student shared that school funding was so short, it couldn’t fix a broken sink that fell off a wall. Another resident shared how she catches at least 17 mice in her apartment each night. Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop committed to continuing his partnership with JCT to address community issues, and JCT plans to meet with both Governor Phil Murphy and state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal in January of 2019.
