End Housing Discrimination Now
Join our coalition to end housing discrimination in New Jersey. We are coming together to demand our elected leaders pass the Fair Chance in Housing Act to address systemic racism in our criminal justice system and give every New Jerseyan the chance to live in a good home.
It’s time to end housing discrimination in New Jersey.
Right now, large, corporate landlords use criminal background checks as a tool to exclude Black and brown tenants from communities. Communities of color in New Jersey are over-policed. Black people represent more than 60 percent of the state’s prison population, despite being only 15 percent of the state’s broader population. And a staggering one in nine New Jersey Latinos can expect to be incarcerated — three times the rate for white non-Hispanic New Jerseyans.
