Sisters and Brothers,
Governor Christie as one of his last acts on Martin Luther King’s Birthday signed into law (S677) legislation to reduce racial disparities within New Jersey’s criminal justice system.
We have much more work to do and we pray you can join faith, civil rights and community leaders from all across the state, this Sunday at 5PM as we launch the NJ Prophetic Agenda.
WE FOUGHT FOR RACIAL IMPACT AND WE WON!
GOD IS ON OUR SIDE LET’S KEEP FIGHT FORWARD TOGETHER!

150 YEARS WAS ENOUGH!
January 8, 2018, Governor Chris Christie announced his plan to close two of the state’s youth prisons—the New Jersey Training School for Boys (“Jamesburg”), the largest youth prison for boys, and the Female Secure Care and Intake Facility (“Hayes”), the state’s girls’ youth prison—and to build two youth rehabilitation centers based on national best practices.
“Youth incarceration is a moral stain on our state,” said Rev. Charles Boyer. “We must reject the lie that our kids are unredeemable—that the children locked up in Jamesburg and Hayes should be judged by the worst thing they’ve ever done, rather than the best person they can ever be. We must do better by our kids and their future. We must create a youth justice system that is guided by the principle that every child can be saved. That is what this moment is all about.”
