Join the #NJVotes4Kids Campaign!
Last week, nearly 200 people attended ACNJ’s 2017 Children’s Summit, focused on raising the visibility of kids’ issues in the upcoming election.
Keynote speaker Bruce Lesley, President of First Focus, presented on the political landscape for kids at the federal level. A panel of NJ political insiders spoke candidly on the barriers to advancing good public policies for children.

We shared our Election Guide
