We are driven by democracy
Election infrastructure has long been neglected in New Jersey — and in our nation. Our work has resulted in major changes for New Jersey voters especially the widely-used and popular ballot drop boxes in every county.
Mission and Vision
EDUCATE – ENGAGE – EMPOWER
The mission of ATNJEF is to educate, engage, and empower New Jerseyans to be active citizens participating fully in our vibrant democracy.
ATNJ Education Fund envisions a state of citizens who are informed and engaged in
democracy, where the power lies with working class people, and elected officials form policies which create and maintain a just, fair, and inclusive community.
What does this mean in practice? To see what we did in 2022 in furtherance of our mission and vision, please view our Impact Report.
How do we help both voters and volunteers? Voter-to-voter relational engagement: we write letters to voters to educate and to increase voter turnout.
In 2022, we reached young voters ages 18-20 identified as African-American, Native American, Asian, and Hispanic with handwritten Vote By Mail mailers by volunteers statewide.
