The Alliance for Racial and Social Justice (ARSJ) is a grassroots organization whose mission is to promote equity and justice in our communities, with expertise and focus as a watchdog for mental health, child protective and court-based services.
We work for social justice through collective action and accountability regarding inequities arising from white supremacy and anti-Blackness and by initiating and sustaining action aimed at eradicating racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, able-ism, and other abuses of power.
New Jersey family courts are failing domestic violence victims, their children and perpetrators who are not mandated to standardized batterers intervention programs.
Furthermore, the state's most vulnerable citizens are relegated to a broken system of justice, and influential state agencies and advocates have not moved responsibly to address the complexity and seriousness of the problem.
Engage in accountability for New Jersey and beyond. Support Watch NJ and community-driven interventions today!
