Far too many immigrant New Jerseyans and their families live in fear that a routine interaction with law enforcement, a visit to the emergency room, or even a school drop-off will result in separation from their loved ones and deportation.

We must build a truly fair and welcoming state for all people – regardless of immigration status. It’s past time for New Jersey to end its participation in the federal detention and deportation machine– as states like Connecticut and California have done. New Jersey must pass the Values Act.


Send a Message to Your State Legislator

Tell your state leaders: It’s past time for New Jersey to end its complicity with ICE's cruelty. We must pass the Values Act. Send a message.

Hi, my name is [YOUR NAME.] I am a New Jersey resident and I am calling to urge [Senate President Scutari/Assembly Speaker Coughlin] to advance the New Jersey Values Act (S512/A1986). Every day that we fail to pass the Values Act is another day that immigrant New Jerseyans have to live in fear that an emergency room visit or a school drop-off will lead to family separation.
