Liberating

Public Policy

Theologically

Salvation and Social Justice (SandSJ) is the leading organization in New Jersey for racial justice issues. We are actively working on campaigns to Abolish the Drug War, create community-led first responders, expand healthcare access to all especially Black mothers, desegregate New Jersey’s Schools, police accountability, and environmental justice.​

OUR AREAS OF ACTION & ADVOCACY

Salvation and Social Justice is a Black-led, Trenton-based, statewide organization. Our mission is to abolish structural racism and liberate public policy theologically by modeling and building the hope and resiliency of Black faith, where historically marginalized people move from lament to liberation by advocating, envisioning, and creating their own community-led solutions.

LOCAL & STATEWIDE IMPACT

COMMUNITY IMPACT

SandSJ’s advocacy has led to the statewide adoption of racial impact analysis for sentencing, voting rights restoration for people on probation and parole, the independent prosecutor law, and restricting solitary confinement.

 

SandSJ led the campaign to free thousands of incarcerated people from New Jersey’s deadly prisons due to Covid-19 pandemic, making it the singular decarceration event in New Jersey’s history. Two MAJOR pieces of legislation focused on neighborhood involvement were signed into law, directing funds to organizations that provide solutions directly to the community: The Restorative and Transformative Justice for Youth and Communities Bill and the Seabrooks-Washington Community-Led Response Act.
